Inspirational and Empowering Child Care Business Owners To Build Successful Child Care Businesses

One of my old employees told me that I was a micro manager. In fact she felt that I was not letting her be a teacher. In other words, she wanted me to not monitor her classroom so closely.

One day I was observing one of my classrooms via the video monitoring camera and I noticed that the teacher’s body language toward the children was quite negative, so I decided to leave my office to observe and listen to what was going on in the classroom. It appeared that she was tired and very short-tempered with the kids and I noticed it on the video monitoring camera.

I asked her if she was tired and she said,” No, but Mrs. Morgan you know how some of these kids can be.” I told her, “that is no excuse to speak to the kids in a harsh manner.” So she went on break and after her break, she told me that she could not work for me any more and told me I was a micro-manager.

I was glad that she quit, because it really revealed to me that I had the wrong person on my team and really feel that the owner must always look out for the best interest of the kids and hire teachers that feel the same way that you do.

As an owner of a childcare center of over 9 years, I have decided to continue to closely monitor the practices of my staff or hire someone else to do it, because the practices of your staff will ultimately give your childcare business a great reputation or ruin your business reputation!

The video that you are about to view below is a great example of why classroom practices must be closely monitored. I look forward to reading your thoughts about this post.

  1. As a former daycare staff, I loved being monitored. I knew that the kids I had grown to love were safe. I received raises and awards for the way I ran my classroom. I have also seen people let go because of their own actions. I think when it comes to other peoples children, you should always be extra careful.

  2. Wow! I had this happen to my daughter and it wasn’t pleasant. You are right to protect the interest of you children, business, employees and yourself. Most authority would side with the adults and kids ate afraid to.speak up because of that. Good for you.
