You must have a plan to be a Successful Child Care Business Owner!
At the beginning of every year, I create a professional development plan for my self and I require that my staff create their very own professional development plan.
Furthermore, I believe that creating a professional development plan is a sure way to grow as a Business owner and a Child Care professional. So, let me ask you a question? Have you developed a professional development plan for this year yet?
If not, I want to share with you a sample Professional Development plan for the upcoming year!
- Plan to attend a Leadership Conference every year. Your Business will rise or fall on your ability to lead. Not sure where to go? Check out the Chic Fila Simulcast or a live conference this year. click here You will be so glad you attended a Leadercast!
- Create a Plan to earn the required clock hours for your state. I suggest that you take a variety of classes on various topics such as: Curriculum development, Health & Safety, Program Planning, etc.
