Woman with Briefcase

Business practices play a very important role in the quality of care provided to children. Important child care business areas include:

  • communication;
  • record keeping;
  • financial decisions; and
  • training.

Child care provider associations offer information on operating a child care business. Two well-known associations are the Texas Association for Family Child Care and Texas Professional Home Childcare Association.
