Monday, November 19, 2018

Supporting a team of employees in gaining more skills and knowledge, while enhancing the quality of care offered by your child care service? That’s the win-win you get when you invest in professional development in child care. Invest in your business’s most crucial resource – its people – and watch your business thrive.

Being proactive about building the skills of your workforce is a simple yet incredibly effective way of taking your child care business to the next level. Let’s explore the benefits of professional development for your service.

The benefits to your centre: Professional development in child care

  • Motivate staff: If your team is lacking enthusiasm, child care professional development can reinvigorate their passion for the industry and give your team members the motivation they need to get excited about their career.
  •  

    • Retain staff: An employee who feels valued and fulfilled at work is one who stays, and professional development can be an excellent way to show your staff that you care. In this way, you’ll save money on recruitment and with highly trained educators your child care centre will be in the best position to increase enrolments too.

     

    • Increase productivity: With the confidence and capabilities gained through additional training, you can expect your team of educators to be more efficient than ever and have the latest and greatest knowledge to benefit the way your centre is run.

     

    • Raise your standard: When child care professionals are equipped with the latest information and training, they will be able to provide the highest possible standard of care. Enhancing your team enhances your centre at the same time, and that means you’ll attract more families.
