Does The Ideal Employee For Your Child Care Business Exist?

 Does The ideal Employee Exist?

I believe that most Child Care Business Owners with employees wonder if the ideal employee exists. To be realistic, the answer is this: You must create your ideal employee!

It took me 11 years to realize that if I want the ideal employee, I must create the ideal job offer that offers growth. The perfect candidate has very little room to grow and employees love a company that offers growth.

My center is Accredited and there are very strict qualification guidelines for new employees and I find that many potential applicants may not meet those guidelines.

In fact, because of my challenges of finding the ideal employee for my center, I decided to change the way that I seek out potential applicants. Furthermore, I decided that I must create my very own Ideal employee.

Take a moment and write down what you believe would be the ideal employee for your Child Care center, then evaluate if you have the ideal employees for your Business. Feel free to share below:

What Child Care Business Owners Should Know About Labor Laws


Do you have employees? If so, it is vital that you visit the United States Department of Labor Website and become familiar with Labor Laws.

The mission of the US. Dept of Labor is as follows: “To foster, promote, and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers, and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights.”

Moreover, the US. Department of Labor is a great resource for employers and provides helpful tools and resources to assure that employers comply with Labor Laws.

Something to think about….What you don’t know can hurt your business and could lead to a Labor Hearing or a Lawsuit.  

This post is not intended to frighten you, but to empower you and is not only intended for center owners. If you have employees in your home; labor laws apply to you too. Also, if you plan to open a center; you must definitely become familiar with Labor Laws!

Be sure to visit the U.S. Department of Labor website today; become familiar with all the Labor Laws that pertain to your business  and check out the resources that are available to you as an employer.

Furthermore, my intention today is to encourage you to review your current personnel/labor practices, make any necessary changes, protect your business and empower your self as an employer!
