Child Care Business Lab

with Coastal Enterprises, Inc


Increasing access to quality child care is a key piece of making an economy that works for everyone.

Child care providers are an important part of the Maine economy for three reasons: they provide education and enrichment for our children, they eliminate a barrier many parents face when they want to work and they create job opportunities.

Through the Child Care Business Lab, we’re helping entrepreneurs start new, quality child care businesses in underserved areas of Maine.

The Child Care Business Lab is an intensive cohort-based program that gives entrepreneurs the tools to start a successful small business, helps them refine their child care/early childhood education philosophy and guides them through the licensing process. Designed as an experiential leadership opportunity, the Child Care Business Lab will provide participants with a blueprint for a high-quality, financially viable child care business.

We are working with people interested in starting a non-profit, for-profit, co-op or shared model child care enterprise.

Apply begining in January 2022 for our next class which starts in March 2022. The classes are limited.
