So you heard of a Childcare Project Manager but is it all about.
A Childcare Project Manager(CPM)is the vital and highly important link between running and controlling a constructive and successful daycare center.
A career as a CPM opens the doors to so many aspects of childcare, it’s astounding that so many childcare or daycare centers try to get by without hiring one.
I guess that is why you get the most sort out daycare centers at a high cost and your everyday centers you put your child in because of costs and availability.
As CPM you not only control the hiring of the legitimate and certified staff but you also research their backgrounds by speaking to their previous employers and sometimes will even speak to neighbors or community leaders to get the real picture of the person before they are employed as they will be in charge of the most important part of the daycare center, the development, and safety of a CHILD, someone else’s child.
A CPM is also in charge of making sure all safety precautions are adhered to, not only in practice but also the physical tools and equipment usages like a jungle gym or monkey bars in the play area, fire drills, the sleeping area’s environment, and eating utensils.
CPM’s are in charge of the daily budgets and all paperwork as they have to control the business of running these centers.
They have to control all aspects of budgets which will include fees charged, payroll of the hired staff, utility bills to be settled on time, stationery and tools or equipment needed for the day to day running of the center.
They will also be in charge of creating and or designing the teaching programs that each employee follows when it comes to the child’s very important stage of learning.
Putting all this together so that the center can run smoothly and without any hiccups can be a daunting task if you do not have a passion for it, therefore the actual education (certificates and degrees)you have for being a manager is not as important as those you have for social development and childcare combined with that passion to care and develop a hungry mind.
Any childcare or daycare center that employs a CPM is almost always the one that will have not only higher fees but higher standards when it comes to staff, premises and teaching or learning programs.
