ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI) launches ADM120: Writing Effective Policies and Procedures

The drafting and compliance strategies shared in this course will help leaders create systems of accountability to ensure policies and procedures are followed.

ATLANTA, GA, June 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), one of the largest online training providers dedicated exclusively to the early care and education workforce, is pleased to introduce its newest course, ADM120: Writing Effective Policies and Procedures

Policies and procedures help programs set the course, define the culture, guide staff members, and ensure transparency in business operations. They allow for consistency in the application of rules across the program. Clear policies and procedures let staff members know what they can expect and what is expected of them.

Policies and procedures can be for an entire center, a specific program (e.g., Summer Camp), or just one age group (e.g., School-age, Pre-K) as appropriate. For example, a non-discrimination policy would apply program-wide, but a policy about professional license maintenance would only apply to specific staff members who require licensure.

Establishing clear policies and procedures is essential for effective program management. This course explores strategies for drafting policies and procedures that are clear and comprehensive. The course will help participants identify topics that should be covered and policy language to use and avoid.  Participants will also discover ways to introduce and train staff in ways that enhance employee buy-in, as well as ways to ensure compliance from staff and families.

“This course will support directors and administrators in their efforts to establish and maintain clear policies and procedures, which are the foundation of program operation and success,” says Dr. Chrystine Mitchell, Director, Early Childhood Education Operations. “Participants will better understand how to word policies and procedures, how to communicate about P&P with staff and families, and how to align actions to the stated policies.” 

Since its founding in 2005, CCEI has launched more than 500 online childcare training courses to meet state licensure and Head Start requirements, as well as online certificate programs for nationally recognized credentials, including the Child Development Associate (CDA).

ADM120: Writing Effective Policies and Procedures is a three-hour, intermediate-level course and grants 0.3 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.
