Mountain Bizworks, in partnership with Self Help Credit Union and Smart Start of Buncombe County, is pleased to offer a new, 8-week business planning course specifically for new and existing child care business operators.

We understand how important affordable, accessible  childcare is to the economic empowerment of individuals in our community and to the economic development of the region, and yet, the number of child care businesses and non-profits in WNC has declined in recent years. We hope to increase the availability, quality, and sustainability of the child care options in our region by strengthening the business skills of the operators of these businesses.

Our first 8-week class begins on August 15th and meets every Saturday (except Labor Day weekend) from 9am to 1pm at Smart Start of Buncombe County (2229 Riverside Drive Asheville, NC 28804). Class dates are: August 15th, 22nd, and 29th, September 12th, 19th, and 26th and October 3rd and 10th. The total cost for the course is $80.

Topics covered will include: Child care business planning basics (such as licenses, certifications, and legal structures), marketing your child care business, bookkeeping, personnel management, taxes, and much more.
