We’re excited to announce a new training opportunity on the Business Administration Scale for Family Child Care (BAS) that can take place in your own home or anywhere you have internet access! Now you can get a basic understanding of the BAS, a tool used to measure and improve business and professional practices in family child care programs, by registering for the Getting Ready for the BAS module.
The Getting Ready for the BAS module is a self-paced, online module that takes about 5 hours to complete. We designed this resource for family child care providers who are getting ready for a formal BAS assessment or just want to learn about best practices. It is also a great tool for those who provide technical assistance to providers or teach courses on family child care.
Through expert guidance, activities, and resources, you’ll learn why business and professional practices are important to improving and maintaining quality in family child care programs. You’ll also get a brief overview of each item in the BAS and learn how to score the items. In addition, you will learn how to use the BAS to develop a program improvement plan.
