This is session five 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 5 | Making Dollars and Sense, Part 1
One of the most critical, but often disliked, parts of running a successful family child care program is having sound fiscal management practices in place. Lack of skill and discomfort in this area can have a devastating effect on the success of the family child care business. Further, coaches often struggle when trying to help providers with financial tasks such as creating a budget, guiding them on recordkeeping needs, and understanding and claiming the appropriate tax deductions associated with the business use of the home. This session includes reflections on personal and emotional relationships with money, an introduction to financial literacy, an overview of money management, and hands-on practice analyzing family child care budgets. Using best practices from the BAS as a guide, participants will learn how to support providers by improving the financial health and sustainability of their businesses.
