22 Day Care Providers Complete Business Management Training through NMC and CCDF (October 29, 2013)

The Northern Marianas College’s Community Development Institute (CDI) recently presented certificates to twenty-two day care center providers who successfully completed a “Business Management Training” course facilitated by CDI and the Department of Community & Cultural Affairs – Child Care Development Fund (DCCA-CCDF).

The 22 day care center providers were given hands-on training in the areas of business planning and operations, financing, marketing, customer service, financial management, and business communications. The course participants also learned about the skills and techniques necessary to manage a small business including how to develop a business plan.

“While consistently providing quality child care is important to maintain a successful day care center, having it well managed also plays a crucial role in that continued success,” said Acting CDI director, Floyd Masga. “That’s why we applaud these day care center providers in the community for going the extra mile to improve their services by learning more about business management.”

The 22 day care center providers who received certificates at the end of the training are Bona Angeles, Maggie Arcega, Flordeliza Flores, Novelita Galvez, Yeldez Javier, Mi Ai Kim, Seon Min Kim, Ruby Rosario Legaspi, Milagros Merjilla, Albina Paman, Remedio Pangelinan, Emery Poquiz, Michelle Silvano, Catherine Tamondong, Meliza Umali, Amelita Vidal, Angelina Villagomez, Adelaida Viloria, Jaye Bautista, Emma Belarde, Gaudencia Corilla, and Rex John Penaroyo.

This training was funded by the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Program under the Department of Community & Cultural Affairs. The CCDF Program is a federally funded program whose ongoing quality child care initiative is to support CCDF providers, teachers, and caregivers to increase their knowledge and skills in the care of young children. By supporting professional development of these individuals, improved outcomes for young children are realized.

NMC’s Community Development Institute (CDI) is a program that offers specialized courses and customized trainings in order to meet both the professional development and personal enrichment needs of the community.
