Inspirational and Empowering Online Child Care Business Coaching!

staff trainingNext to having a Dynamic Curriculum, it is vital that you train your staff to deliver a Dynamic preschool or Child Care Program. Today I am going to share with you 5 easy ways to train your staff, so that children in your program are provided with High Quality Preschool or Child Care Experience.

1. Hire teachers that have experience and seek to hire teachers with early childhood education from an Accredited College. In fact, I believe that quality care begins with educated and trained staff.

2. Before you allow your new teachers or assistants to work in your classroom(s), Schedule a training day. At your training; give your teachers a description of your curriculum and a handbook about your classroom. If you want quality services you must have a written plan, train your staff on the plan and follow-up to see that your teachers are implementing your guidelines.

3. Require that your teachers attend workshops on curriculum development, health,safety & nutrition, Physical Environment and Parent Communication.

4. Develop an observation and mentoring plan for your teachers and provide them with resources that will empower them to become dynamic teachers.

5. Finally, Consider having weekly or monthly quality care meetings. In your meetings, it is vital that you tell your teachers how they are doing, offer them quality care tips and get their feedback.

Its time to get to work on empowering your staff! More to come…

With a Dynamic Preschool Program in mind,

Bradley Russle 2Today I want to inspire you to create a dynamic preschool program. In fact,  I believe that a dynamic preschool program begins with the Curriculum. Furthermore, I have discovered that parents tend to choose child care program, based on their curriculum program.

Please allow me to use my Center as an example. In my Child Care Center, I pull ideas from several researched based Curriculum programs, including:

  • Creative Curriculum
  • Reggio Emelio
  • Project Construct
  • High Scope
  • along with Biblical Principles from Abeka Curriculum

Moreover, our goal is to meet the developmental needs of the children and provide a high quality preschool program. Furthermore, I have found it to be so  boring to use one curriculum and this is why I pull principles from the curriculum programs listed above.

Furthermore,the principles that we implement in my center (from the curriculum programs listed above) have been proven to prepare our preschoolers for school success!
I am in no way endorsing any of the curriculum programs above, however, I am encouraging you to take a closer look at your Curriculum and consider getting new ideas for your Child Care or Preschool Program.

Also, it is vital that you pick and Implement a curriculum model that fits into the mission of your childcare program.

Curriculum is not only about learning the alphabet and numbers; however, Curriculum is what you do from the time that the kids arrive until they go home.

Here are 5 Easy Ways to Create a Dynamic Preschool Curriculum Program:

1. Start by Creating a brochure that describe your Curriculum in an overview format: Monthly themes, the letter, shape, color of the month, character development topic, social skills focus, etc) By reviewing the researched based curriculum programs above, you will gain some ideas for your brochure.

2. Set-up enriching learning centers in your classrooms.

3. Create a Daily Schedule

4. Require that your staff complete and post lesson plans. (based them on the curriculum theme and developmental needs of the children)

5. Create a System that tracks and assesses the development of the children in your program.

If you don’t have the time to develop your very own curriculum; I have done the work for you in my Curriculum Club.  My Curriculum club derived from my 15 years of writing lesson plans and implementing research based curriculum in my program. Check it out Today! (click here)
