Child Care Administration Program

What do Child Care Administration do?

Childcare admins carry a lot of responsibility. They help children learn through well-thought-out activities. They offer guidance to parents. And they influence young minds in ways that are difficult to imagine. If you love children and want to make a difference in little lives—and if you’re looking for ways to have an impact—then you’ll make a great childcare administrator!

Tasks to include but not limited to as responsibilities will vary depending on place of employment.
  • Nurture the emotional, physical, intellectual, and social development of children.
  • Develop and implement education programs and institutional policies.
  • Hire, train, supervise, and provide professional development for employees.
  • Ensure compliance with legal requirements, codes, and regulations.
  • Facilitate communication between parents, children, teachers, and staff.

Requirements before starting:

  • High School Diploma
  • 18 Years of Age
About this Program

Being a child care administrator is a great career choice because there are so many job options. You can work at home or away from home. You can work full time or part-time and make this a side gig for extra income. You can work for others in child care centers, preschools, or any early childhood education (ECE) facility. And you can work for yourself. (29% of child care administrators are self employed.) You can operate a childcare facility of your own, be an elite nanny or anything in between.
