ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), an online child care training provider dedicated exclusively to the early care and education workforce, offers CCEI770: Making Time: Time Management Skills for Administrators as a no-cost trial course to new CCEI users March 1-31, 2018.

Early childhood education professionals have important jobs with major responsibilities. They are responsible for children’s safety and development, and parents are counting on them. While educators should take their job seriously and do the very best they can at the job, providers should also have a life outside of work.  When time is not managed well at work, providers work and home life can suffer. Good time management skills help fulfill duties on the job and help early childhood professionals enjoy life beyond the workplace.

Effective time management is all about understanding what educators need to accomplish in order to succeed.  Once a provider reaches that understanding, they can organize the details of their life and get control of their to−do list.  It’s all about “planning the work and working the plan.”  Good time management allows the provider to organize daily, weekly, and monthly tasks in a way that puts them in control of their to−do list. Without organization and time management, early childhood professionals probably won’t enjoy their job or find much satisfaction in it. Without satisfaction, it will be harder to do a good job, and that can start to show negatively in their job performance.

This course outlines effective time management skills for early childhood education program administrators or directors. Participants will learn how to prioritize deadlines, set goals, and use time more effectively. Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to clearly state their job purpose, list three types of formal and informal planning and create strategies for using time more efficiently.

“Although this course is designed specifically with directors in mind, the time management strategies can help teachers, as well,” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI.  “For that matter, good time management can help anyone with a job, particularly if that job involves multiple responsibilities.”

CCEI770: Making Time: Time Management Skills for Administrators is a one-hour, beginner-level course and grants 0.1 IACET CEU upon successful completion. Current CCEI users with active, unlimited annual subscriptions can register for professional development courses at no additional cost when logged in to their CCEI account.
