Comments from former attendees of the Child Care Business Institute:

"I found the information and resources to be invaluable-I especially appreciated the practical and realistic approach. I feel more able to work through decisions and planning processes."
Beth Cooper, Creative Minds, 2005

"I thought the Institute was wonderful! I learned a great deal on what it takes to open a child care center and will be able to answer questions or at least I know where to turn when providers ask me questions."
Pam Paden, The Family Conservancy, 2005

"This training has provided a comprehensive overview of running a child care business that everyone directing an early childhood center should take. It is critical information necessary to running a successful and profitable business."
Jenine Hough, Child Care Resource and Referral of Upper Des Moines Opportunity, 2005

"The resources and information obtained will be invaluable in my work of assisting people in my community to explore the options of starting a child care center. Vicki is so knowledgeable and the resource guide that she put together for this training thoroughly covers each and every aspect of the business end of opening a child care. The resource guide will be a very valuable tool for me."
Robin Ayers, Child Care Resource and Referral Staff

"I was totally amazed with how much detail and information has been provided. I would highly recommend this conference to anyone considering opening a child care center"
Diane Patrick, Nanny's Neighborhood Childcare Center

"I was amazed at all the information I was given and all the little things that I had overlooked as a business owner."
Alva Roberts, Roberts Childcare

"This training is beneficial for all people in the child care field, all career education levels and all levels of experience. The presenter, guest speakers and the resources are excellent."
Valerie McCoy, Dept of Health & Senior Services, Bureau of Child Care

"The Child Care Business Institute was very comprehensive and covers all aspects of starting a child care center business. To own the materials received all in one resource manual was worth the cost of the Institute alone."
Mary Odell, Lutheran Services in Iowa, Child Care Resource and Referral

"I've been involved in child care and early childhood development for over 30 years and I have participated in child care training of all kinds and this two day course provided me with additional information, insights and ideas. Thank you."
Lorraine Dold Bockorny, Rainbows United, Inc.

" Participants were exposed to a wealth of information and resources. Although I have been in the field for many years, this Institute gave me a better perspective of the "business side" that I am not always directly involved with, yet need to remain aware of."
Chris Rounds, Sunshine Center
