Fall 2009 class completed...20 graduates

Posted By Harry S. Truman College _, Thursday, December 17, 2009
We finished the class this past week...we ended it with a bang and a celebration.  The students were happy, inspired and as they came up to receive there certificate they gave speeches like it was the Academy Awards.
 
The evaluations were good and the gave us some guidance on how to modify the spring class.  The spring class is already full and we have a waiting list.  The class does not begin till February.
 
We have a new teacher for the spring which I think will bring new blood and a fresh approach.
 
I found out some good news from DCFS.  Effective April, 2010, they are requiring all home based child care providers who want to become licensed to receive 15 hours of training before they get their license.  I am getting this curriclum  approved to count toward those 15 hours.
 
Yahoo..we are charging $29 this Spring term and by Fall 2010 we hope to be up to $50. We are on our way to sustainability.
 
Have a great holiday all.  Nancy

Childcare class completed

Posted By Harry S. Truman College _, Wednesday, July 1, 2009
The class finished last nite.  We had about 10 students complete the class. The evaluations were good. The following comments were found on the evaluations:   "we liked the energy of the instructors"  More student involvement is needed. 
 
It was a great taste of whatis to come.  We covered 3 modules in the child care class.  The various  hats you wear as an antrepreneur, marketing of your child care center which included 2 guest speaker who own home based childcare businesses. The final session was on DCFS, food program and revenue and cost projections.
 
I believe many of these students will complete the 12 week program which begins Sept 22, 2009
 
Happy 4th   NK

1st class

Posted By Harry S. Truman College _, Wednesday, June 17, 2009
Last night we had our 1st of 3 sessions.  There are 15 students registered.  A couple of students  already have their associate degrees and most are interested in starting a home based child care center.
 
We introduced concepts and Lenore (co-facilitator) shared many resources and experiences with the students.  Lenore really brings a reality to the class and the students really appreciate
her insights. 
 
Excited about next week when we bring a panel of child care providers to the share there insights.  NK
