The Business of Budgets for Family Child Care

Creating a line item budget is a YoungStar requirement to earn three stars.  But where do you start?  What goes into a budget and how do you set one up if you've never done it before?  This workshop supports providers who are new to budgets and the budgeting process.  We will have lots of time for your questions.
This workshop provides a number of YoungStar approved budgeting resources to make this process less scary – you can do it!  We can help. Opportunities to receive follow up consultation to help you to implement changes effectively will be shared.
