This course is worth 4 Pro-D hours.
A well-managed child care facility helps your program operate effectively and efficiently, and provides a physical setting that is appropriate and adequate for learning. In this 4-hour course, you’ll learn how to ensure your facility is run in the safest, most efficient, quality and cost-effective manner. It includes teachings on facilities policies & procedures, building records, inspections and maintenance.
This is an essential course for leaders who want to improve the stewardship of their program environment, as well as students looking to become child care leaders in BC.
