Business Practices Tutorial
Welcome to the child care Business Practices Tutorial funded by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families! This tutorial covers the impact financial business practices have on improving program quality.
Where do I begin?
- Read and view the material on Home Page – Read this First!
- Scroll over either the Group Center or Family Provider tab (see image at right), depending on which applies to you.
- In the drop-down menu begin with Line Item Budget and work your way down the topics.
- Some may take longer than others to open. Clicking the hour glass or watch icon on the screen can further delay the download and cause it to stop or freeze.
- Some of the documents to download do not open in a new browser window. Therefore, you will want to open it, save it to your computer, and then consider printing. You may have to select ‘enable editing’ once you are ready to open the document on your computer, depending on the Office version you have. Once you have done this, you will need to click on the ‘back arrow’ in the upper left corner of your screen to go back to the tutorial.
First, complete each section of the tutorial.
