Sonoma County Child Care Facilities Development Handbook
As a follow-up to a number of child care studies in Sonoma County, BEI prepared a child care facilities handbook for providers in 2009. The overall purpose of the handbook was to provide a resource to child care providers who are looking to develop a new child care center or large family child care home in Sonoma County or to expand an existing program. This book focuses on the actual development of child care facilities and the permit and entitlement process. It contains some information about community care licensing and developing a business plan.
