Reflecting Oklahoma's commitment to high quality early care and education by providing professional development that produces results!

Family Child Care Home (FCCH) Leadership Academy

CECPD is pleased to announce the implementation of a Leadership Academy for Family Child Care Home providers in Oklahoma.  Class I will be held in Moore.  The Tulsa class did not materialize due to low enrollment.   

Research has shown that opportunities in the early years matter for success in school and in life, and family child care providers are leading the way. Beyond providing quality care, your family child care home is also a business. Join other home providers for this unique training opportunity in business essentials. Attend four Saturday sessions over a 4-month period and receive 24 hours of formal training credit.  Registration fee:  $75

Session topics include:

  • Introduction to the Business Administration Scale (BAS)
  • The ABC's of a Child Care Business
  • Program Management
  • Legal Knowledge
  • Program Planning
  • Policy & Procedures
  • Staff Development
  • Building a Stronger Child Care Business Using the BAS

All applicants meeting the following requirements will be considered:

  • You must be a licensed family child care home.
  • Homes will be required to have a pre-Business Administration Scale (BAS) assessment prior to the completion of the final session and a post-BAS 12 months after completing all four sessions of the training.
  • Preference will be given to homes that serve state subsidy children.
