BAS Transformative TA Institute | Session 2 of 6 | Key Concepts for Coaching with the BAS


This is session two of the BAS Transformative TA Institute.

This virtual, six-session institute is specifically designed for those in technical assistance (TA) roles, including coaches, mentors, and consultants, who support family child care providers in improving their business and professional practices. The Transformative TA Institute is focused on how to use the Business Administration Scale for Family Child Care (BAS) as a tool for providing technical assistance.

Session 2 | Key Concepts for Coaching with the BAS

Understanding how to conduct a formal BAS assessment and knowing how to use the BAS for technical assistance require different skill sets. This session will provide a brief overview of the BAS and will focus on key concepts for those in technical assistance roles. Strategies for addressing provider concerns, explaining indicators of quality and research design aspects, and supporting providers in decision-making will be highlighted. This session will set the tone for providing a deep dive into the following BAS topic areas: fiscal management and recordkeeping, contracts, handbooks and risk management plans, and family partnership and engagement.
