Lynchburg Area Small Business Development Center to Host Home Child Care Business Course


LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ) — The Lynchburg Area Small Business Development Center is offering a free course for those interested in starting a home child care business.

They offer the course in September to teach people basic marketing, financial forecasting, and other tools to help grow their business.

They will also discuss human resources, leadership and some aspects of security that go along with the necessary licenses from the Ministry of Education. The SMDC says that researching licensing standards and this class will put people on the right path to successful and safe family child care.

“The resources that we provide, hopefully that will give family child care providers a bit more information about getting licensed and what I mean by licensed is that once you have applied for a permit, and have the inspector come in and inspect your facility to make sure it’s up to code. They’re really there to make sure the environment is safe. I think taking advantage of these services will, if nothing else, give families peace of mind,” says Anthony Andrews, Early Childhood Education Consultant at SBDC.

The course is for those in the Lynchburg area and will be held every other Saturday morning until mid-December.
