Inside Child Care Management

Child care centers and preschools need an administrator or director to be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the center and to direct the educational programs the center provides. Child care management is associated most closely with a degree in early childhood education or elementary education. This, along with some experience teaching preschool or early grades, can be useful preparation for someone who wishes to be a child care center or preschool director.

The director of these facilities is often the only administrator; therefore, all administrative tasks can fall to that person, including hiring, daily operations, developing curriculum and ensuring the center complies with health department and other state regulations.
