DAY CARE CENTER MANAGEMENT TRAINING PROJECT
Through a contract with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, The New York State Child Care Coordinating Council develops and delivers management training for day care center directors throughout the state. Full day training workshops are currently offered in seven topic areas: Motivating Staff to Improve and Excel, Hiring and Orienting Day Care Center Staff, Strengthening Supervisory Skills, Conducting Effective Performance Appraisal, Marketing Your Child Care Center to Meet the Needs of Families, The Director’s Role in Developmentally Appropriate Practices: With Materials and The Director’s Role in Developmentally Appropriate Practices: Room Arrangement. Topics offered, including dates and locations, are determined in consultation with the Bureau of Early Childhood Services Regional Managers.
In addition, NYSCCCC provides technical assistance to numerous day care centers throughout the state. Selected centers receive long-term, hands-on, practical, individualized consulting services from a team of NYSCCCC staff members. Together with the center director and the program’s licensing representative, NYSCCCC staff develop a plan to address specific areas to focus on during the course of the technical assistance. Areas that can be addressed include personnel and parent policies, supervision of staff, performance appraisals, fiscal management, payment policies, and all aspects of developmentally appropriate practices.
