Care must be taken to ensure that the business is properly registered, that all current requirements and standards are followed, and that their financial plan for the business is achievable and logical. The course covers the planning that must be undertaken to understand what is required from childcare businesses in different areas, how to advertise and launch a childcare business, how to ensure that a childcare business adheres to the strict regulations and how to keep good financial records.
