Child care businesses, whether licensed in home family providers or centers, are foundational to a community’s present and future economic success.

The Women’s Business Development Center, a nationally recognized leader in the field of women’s business development and economic empowerment, and Lake Land College’s Center for Business and Industry, experienced in the coordination of successful Apprenticeships, both have programs that can help.

Blanca Berthier, Managing Director, Entrepreneurial Business Program and Services, Division I for the Women’s Business Development Center will highlight the free resources that they have available to child care business owners like:

  • individual business advising 
  • business workshops 
  • monthly collaboratives
  • virtual support cohort   

Brad Jansen, Owner, and Hannah Roberson, Assistant, of Montessori Kids Universe, Effingham and Bonnie Moore, Director, Center of Business and Technology at Lake Land College will  explain how their new child care apprenticeship process will benefit both current workforce and new employees.
