Self-Assessment for Directors and Administrators of Child Care Programs

A child care program director must manage many things at once and still be able to prioritize all tasks in a day’s time. While remaining calm and collected, the child care director must also be aware that changes may affect the staff and the enrolled families. Whether the director directs a small family child care home business or a large center, the skills are basically the same. The size and number affected just may differ.

Day-to-day management is important. But you also need a strong personal philosophy about children and families, a long range plan, and set of defined goals developed along with staff and families.

If you are interested in learning more about yourself and the skills needed to be an excellent program administrator, then please work through this self-assessment.

If you are a teacher and want to work through the interactive teacher professional development plan, please feel free to use the Teachers’ Workbook provided by this site.
