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
