The learning outcome will be to recognize the importance of hiring and retaining the right person to maintain stability for the program, families, and children. This will occur when leaders communicate, respect, and acknowledge their employees.

Interviewing and hiring techniques to attract the most qualified applicants will be outlined.
  • Training – What can be expected without training? Ongoing training is important for all staff to ensure that they understand the requirements, policies, and procedures. A well-trained staff will provide a safe and nurturing environment for all children. The proper training will reduce mistakes that are made at the center.
  • Retaining – Learn how to incorporate new ideas, institute different ways of thinking, and operating within the early childhood center to reduce staff turnover and improve employee retention.
