A typical day for me as the Executive Director will be greeting parents and children each morning from 7:00a-9:00a arrival. Next at 9:00a check with the cook of our daily menu for food preparation. Visit classroom teachers/caregivers monitoring daily lesson plans of prepared activities. Briefly talking with classroom teachers/caregiver and asking questions how their classroom educational activities working as well as the children participation. Weekly meeting with my administrative assistant, Classroom Supervisor, maintenance, environmental specialist and bus driver. As my personal motto I will state to all my staff it takes a team to operate a successful childcare operation, not one person.
The hardest part of my job would be staffing. This would be in reminding them of the center rules and policy. Staff can become a little lacks on their responsibility in the classroom during daily operation for quality teaching and care.
The most enjoyable part of the job are the children. The children learn my name giving them the level of comfort to speak or talk with me when arriving for the days activity or leaving for the day. With this in mind it makes the parent feel comfortable in leaving their little person in our center's care. Keeping in mind this is the parent most prize possession for care in their child's preschool years.
