image in article Childcare ManagementManaging a childcare facility requires a variety of skills in both early childhood education and business management practices. Administrators who have adequate training in each area are better capable of developing and maintaining a successful program. Learn the skills necessary to plan, budget, staff, and monitor your childcare program.

Childcare administrators are responsible for ensuring the program is fully staffed by qualified teachers and also ensuring that mandatory teacher-student ratios are kept at all times. Administrators assist staff in working towards set goals for the program, class, and individual children. They intervene with any problems that occur between the teachers, children, and parents, and try to resolve any issues in the interests of all parties involved. They also interview, hire and train new staff, as well as hold meetings and tours of the center with potential new families. Administrators supervise childcare employees and ensure the facility’s staff meets state requirements for education and training.

Effective administrators develop communication systems for staff to ensure compliance, high staff morale, and a collaborative atmosphere.

Childcare program administrators develop policies, procedures, and programs and ensure that these policies are carried out appropriately. They also make sure that the program meets all the rules and regulations set up by their specific state or district, and that licensing is kept up-to-date. They are also responsible for all communication between parents, teachers, and the community.

Administrators ensure that children are always properly supervised, the nutritional needs of the children are met, and a healthy, safe and stimulating indoor and outdoor environment is provided and maintained.

Administrators encourage parent involvement and develop strategies to increase community, family, and staff collaboration.
