This is session three 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 3 | Put It In Writing: What Belongs in a Family Child Care Contract and Handbook
Contracts and handbooks are two of the most important documents a family child care provider can have; however, providers often struggle with creating and organizing these documents. Using best practices from the BAS as a guide, this session provides the fundamental elements of each document and discusses strategies for coaching providers in creating, updating, and implementing important program policies. Participants will learn the key elements of contracts and handbooks and how to support providers as they organize each document in a way that will protect their business and help bridge communication between them and the families they serve.
Presented by: Jill Bella, Director of Professional Learning; Robyn Kelton, Quality Training Specialist; Iris Corral, Leadership Training Specialist
