Course Description:

The course is designed to provide an overview of the role and responsibilities of the early childhood and/or afterschool program administrator.

Students will develop skills and identify resources to better prepare themselves for meeting the challenges faced by early childhood administrators.

5. Describe the use of technology in managing an effective and confidential record keeping system (e.g. enrollment, attendance, medication administration, staff qualifications).
6. Develop and manage an operating budget and business plan for an early childhood or afterschool program and interpret financial statements.
7. Participate in various aspects of personnel management using Vermont’s Core Competencies as a resource for hiring, staff orientation, developing job descriptions, evaluating performance, assessing strengths, identifying learning needs, and supporting individuals in creating professional development plans.
8. Discuss the role of parental involvement and develop successful strategies to encourage their participation in early childhood education or afterschool programs.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
