EO Child Care Business Development

Child care business development empowers women to become self-sufficient and thrive while providing a much needed service in the Boise area - affordable, nurturing, multi-cultural child care for all ages. These licensed child care providers are dedicated mothers who love what they do and are devoted to the children they care for.

Child Care Business Development

Jannus EO helps individuals to establish licensed home-based child care businesses by working alongside them to navigate the business and legal requirements. With EO, home care providers will complete the early childhood development curriculum, health/safety training, business development coursework, and licensing with the city. EO staff continues working with all its entrepreneurs for months, and even years, after a business has been established to ensure positive business outcomes and economic growth.
