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.

  • individual business advising 

  • business workshops 

  • monthly collaboratives

  • virtual support cohort
