The Pennsylvania Key’s Program Quality Assessment (PQA) team invites Family Child Care Providers and Group Child Care Providers in a residential building to join a Business Administration Scale (BAS) Community of Practice (CoP) cohort. This opportunity is for providers who want to enhance their knowledge of the Business Administration Scale (BAS), gain a deeper understanding of business practices and connect, network, and collaborate with peers.

There are two scheduled cohorts and selected participants will be able to choose the cohort that’s better for their schedule.
  • Cohort 1: September 2022 – March 2023
  • Cohort 2: January 2022 – June 2023

Participants will receive session materials, the documentation collection and the Tom Copeland/Redleaf Press Family Child Care Business Series book set. Upon completion, PQAS hours will be awarded and a Certificate of Completion will be provided for attending all 12 sessions. Continued support from certified BAS assessors will also be available.

Registration fee is $70.00.

Prospective participants should express interest via Microsoft Forms ( by July 29, 2022.
