Training Workshops Building a Business
Certified Family Child Care Program Management Training

Applications are OPEN for hybrid/distance Cohort 8. Thanks to AFSCME Training funds and the Oregon Department of Education we are able to offer a satellite regional cohort for Medford area for 2017-2018.

Building a Business Training

The training will be held over 10 Saturdays, one or two per month.

Are you ready to take your child care business to a higher level? Do you need hours in Program Management for QRIS? We want a diverse group of providers. Training will be conducted in English and books and handouts are in English, but non-native speakers have been successful participants. We will also have coaching support in Spanish at both locations.
You must be at Step 3 or higher on the Oregon Registry
. You must commit to attend all 10 training sessions. Training is scheduled one or two Saturdays per month from September 23, 2017 through April 14, 2018. Training includes 60 hours of Set Two Training in Program Management plus Orientation, Q & A sessions, and coaching in the development of a Business Plan which meets the course outcomes and is the foundation of your QRIS portfolio.

You MUST currently be a Owner/Operator of Certified Family Child Care, staff of a Certified Family Child Care or a Registered Family Child Care Provider who wants to improve their program in QRIS. This program applies to those who serve children in any age group from infants through school-age.

Dates: Classes are held on Saturdays 8:15 am – 3:30 or 5:00 pm. You must commit to attending all sessions. See this calendar for training dates and details.

There will be two training sites - AFSCME Offices in Portland and in Medford.

Costs: $200 per person which can be paid in installments. The balance of the tuition is covered by two scholarships. You can pre-apply for the Cohort Scholarship at OCCD. Select according to your current Step 3-8.5 or 9-12. Receipt of a scholarship award does not guarantee a space in the Cohort. The scholarship/commitment form for AFSCME and the Office of Child Care is completed at Orientation.


Application in Word or as a PDF. Complete applications and supporting letter must be returned by Friday, September 1st, at 5:00 pm. Participants accepted on a space available basis.

All applications are screened for qualifications, geographic appropriateness, and commitment to the program. Only 10-12 participants will be chosen for each site.

Still not sure? Here is what past participants have said.

Jessica's essay - PDF from Cohort 4

"At first I was hesitant to enroll in the Building a Business course, when my friend told me about it. I wasn’t sure what to expect and if it was going to be beneficial for me since English is my second language. But soon after attending a few classes, I was pleasantly surprised that this course was going to be extremely beneficial. I was going to learn lots of new things that I would be able to apply to my own daycare in order to expand it and make it more efficient." Fereshteh, Cohort 4
