Subject Area 5: Managing an Effective Program

Managing a childcare facility requires a variety of skills in both #early-childhood education and business management practices. When we as administrators are equipped with adequate training in every area of management and business planning, we are better able to execute a better program for both #staff and children. We developed this course to equip new directors and administrators with the skills necessary to plan, budget, staff, and monitor a child care program.
