 Business Support for Child Care Service Providers

The Women’s Business Development Council (WBDC) recognizes the vital importance that child care businesses play in our economy.  That is why we are here to help child care service providers in Connecticut with business development, from training on how build a business plan, to hands-on assistance with accessing loans and grants.   We offer live and on-demand training on a variety of business topics geared at child care service providers, along with no-cost 1:1 business counseling sessions.  All services are currently being held virtually.

    WBDC recently held a virtual Town Hall conversation with Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, Rosie Jones-Clarke, Director of Bright Morning Star Day Care and Maria Miranda, Owner & Creative Director of Miranda Creative, Inc., regarding the child care industry in Connecticut.  The conversation focused on Congresswoman DeLauro’s recently introduced legislation, the Child Care Is Essential Act, which would provide emergency support to child care providers impacted by the pandemic.  Our panelists also discussed how accessibility to child care impacts our economy in general and small businesses in particular.
