Child care is a business. Whether your agency is a non-profit or a for profit operation; it is a business. Most child care agency owners and/or directors are trained in education or the social sciences. The continued existence of every agency depends upon how well the business is run. This seminar will focus on some basic principals to help every administrator become a better business professional. It is important that every business person understand the financial documents relating to their business and how banks and other financial institutions view them. Participants should bring to the seminar, copies of their last year’s Profit and Loss Statement and their Balance Sheet because we will utilize them to gauge growth, break even points and cash flow and participants will learn to utilize these documents to take control of their businesses.
