Do care for children between the ages of 2-5? If so, I want to inspire you to take a closer look at your Preschool Program. In fact, the next time that you receive a phone call from a parent; I want you to confidently say this: I have an amazing Preschool program!

Moreover, with more Public schools offering preschool programs, I believe that it is vital that home daycare Providers and Center Owners, offer parents a Full-Day Preschool Program.

Furthermore, parents want their kids in an educational environment and they love the convenience of having all their kids (including their infant-toddlers) in the same place.

Today I am going to share with you 10 ways to Build a Preschool Program in your Home or Center:

  1. Implement a Research Based Curriculum in your Preschool Program. Ideas: Creative Curriculum, High Scope or even Project Construct, High Reach and that’s just to name a few. You can even check out my Curriculum Club. (12 month membership club)
  2. Provide daily activities that stimulate the minds of preschoolers such as: Art, science, music, handwriting, dramatic play, manipulative and even some opportunities to cook.
  3. Plan your day with a daily schedule that offers a variety of active & quiet activities. Click here
  4. Keep track of each child’s development by assessing the children’s development on a quarterly basis. Download Developmental Assessment forms.
  5. Hire Teachers with early childhood education or if you are a home provider, consider taking some early childhood classes.
  6. Set up an environment that is fun and enriching for preschoolers. Moreover, the environment should include Learning Centers: Blocks, dramatic play, Art. Science, reading center, sensory table, etc. ( Home providers, see my article How to Create a Preschool in your home)
  7. Provide parent-teacher conferences at least once a year. At your conference, be sure to share feedback about each child’s progress and get feedback from parents. (click here)
  8. Send home weekly progress reports for parents. This is a great way to inform parents of their child’s progress in your preschool program.
  9. Create a Preschool Supply List! Parents love the idea that their little ones are going to school. Here are a few items that you may want to put on your Preschool Supply list: Markers, Crayons, Tissue, Nap time linen, Writing journal, extra clothes for Cubby, hand wipes and back pack.
  10. Market your Preschool Program. Be sure to include your preschool program on your website, on your brochures, flyers and banners. For more marketing ideas, grab my Marketing 101 toolkit!

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,

Shiketa
