Immigrants come to a new country, or they are thrown into a foreign land, like people in the late 70’s trying to escape the Cambodian genocide, siblings were torn apart do to the quick process of immigration and they had to figure everything out on their own, far beyond what is obvious; these are the things immigrants feel self-conscious about. They alone have to figure out what opportunities or services are available to them, who are trustworthy, or what organizations are good for them. Coming to a country as an immigrant, you are already behind the eight ball, and you have to catch up to people who have been here their entire lives.
On August 25th, our first workshop took place with Vita Center, Inc. on How to Open Your Own Home-Based Child Care Program.
The workshop was coordinate by our NYSELTC Trainer, Johanna Echeverria, who helped our attendees learn about the important guidelines of starting your own childcare program and the state-required classes that go along with it.
Some of the important things that were touched upon in the workshop included:
- How to get acquainted and familiarize yourself with the New York State OCFS child day care regulations
- What type of daycare program to decide on (as pictured)
- Examples of health risks posed by environmental health hazards
- Health care plan guidelines
- Safety and emergency planning
- What to know about food programs
- Finding the need for child day care in your area

In today's society, entrepreneurship is fast becoming the norm. Even if you don't start your business, people are expected to come in with the necessary skills to succeed in their specific career. It is up to you to make sure you are knowledgeable before entering the workforce. This growing sense of self-innovation has caused many people to go the whole way and make it on their own.
