Free Training Available: Strengthening Business Practices for Child Care Programs

The Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) and the PA Key are offering Strengthening Business Practices for Child Care Programs beginning January 2023.

  • Marketing Your Program

  • Recruiting and Retaining Staff

There are two versions of this series: one for center-based providers and one for family child care (based) providers. Sessions will begin as early as January and as late as June. See this flyer for session dates and registration details.

Trainings are available at no-cost to participants. PQAS and ACT 48 available. Attendance of full series is required for credit.
