A Message from Edward Rowell,
Early Education Community Partnership Coordinator (Southwest)

Good Morning, 

I would like to invite you and anyone that you think might be interested in attending a new course we will be offering from Bright from the Start. “So you want to open a child care facility” is a regionally based training targeted to reach anyone that is interested in opening a child care program. We hope to bring awareness to some important topics that should be considered when beginning the journey to creating a business in child care. Child care is much more than teaching children and providing a safe environment for them to thrive. When we are prepared to the fullest it ensures that we can succeed in the business world

“So, You Want to Open a Child Care Program?” will be conducted in Macon Georgia at Central Georgia Technical College’s Macon campus on September 16, 2019 from 10:00am-12:00pm. Space is limited to 30 participants and they will need to register at the link below. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you at the training. clink open Hyperlink and it will take you to the page
