The publications listed on this website are compiled from a number of resources on the national, state, and local levels. Our intention in compiling this list is not to promote the work of any particular authors, organizations, or companies, but rather to make as many child care facilities development publications accessible as we can.

These publications are divided into four categories:

The Insight Center for Community Economic Development (Insight Center) extensively revised and expanded, in 2009, two manuals designed to help child care providers manage the financial side of their businesses and prepare for a facility development project including expanding, renovating, building or purchasing a child care center or family child care home. These documents are provided as free downloads in English, Spanish and Chinese: (Note that only the Family Child Manual is available in Chinese.)


Please note that references to services available and contacts for Building Child Care are inaccurate, as the project is no longer funded.
