Q & A with Tom Copeland

Tom Copeland is the nation’s leading trainer, author and advocate on the business of family child care since 1981. Tom is a licensed attorney and has presented hundreds of business workshops for family child care providers across the country with complex business and tax issues.

This session is a supplement to "Business & Fiscal Management for Family Child Care" and does not qualify toward the training requirement for the Alaska Early Childhood Administrator Credential for Learn & Grow. This session provides the opportunity to ask Tom Copeland questions on business and fiscal management for child care programs, both center based and Family Child Care (FCC).

Cost: Free to providers enrolled in Learn & Grow. The cost for providers not enrolled in Learn & Grow is $22.50.  (All participants, whether participating in Learn & Grow or not, needing travel assistance must complete the Travel Grant application)

The scope of the training is informational as Mr. Copeland will not provide legal, financial, tax or other professional advice. Please consult individually with a legal and/or tax professional for these services.
