The Best Childcare Director Training
Why hiring the right staff matters
Even if you’ve been a childcare professional for years, you may be having a problem sourcing, hiring, and keeping on good, sensible workers. It has nothing to do with your leadership skills and everything to do with the interview process.
Think of it this way. Staff members are trained with a specific selection of characteristics, and those are the characteristics you’re looking for when you hire someone. Pretty straight-forward. But, as you already know, working in childcare is more than characteristics; it’s the strength of character and dedication to the job the right way.
You could be the most influential director out there, but the wrong staff under your supervision will lead to chaos and frustration from you down to the little ones in your care. Hiring the right help for the job you have designated is going to be crucial.

The thing to remember with hiring and bringing on staff members is that they will have to decide whether your work environment is a productive one for them to put their skills to use. That’s often a personal journey for each worker, and it means that you, as the director, need to minimize turnover and employee burnout as much as possible by hiring the right people in the first place — for their sake and yours.
