Improve the quality of your family child care setting

The Business Administration Scale for Family Child Care is the first valid and reliable tool for measuring and improving the overall quality of business and professional practices in your family child care setting. It is applicable for multiple uses, including program self-improvement, technical assistance and monitoring, training, research and evaluation, and public awareness.

This scale allows you to easily set goals to incrementally improve business practices that will result in better communication with parents, financial stability, reduced risk in operating a home business, and compliance with legal requirements. Using a 7-point rating scale (inadequate to excellent), this easy-to-use assessment instrument measures:

  • qualifications and professional development
  • income and benefits
  • work environment
  • fiscal management
  • recordkeeping
  • risk management
  • provider-parent communication
  • community resources
  • marketing and public relations
  • provider as employer
