Administrator’s Program

Day-Care Administrator Credentialing Program

The NSHES credential program is directly geared to building administrator skills, knowledge and strategies for childhood education and development. Training's are designed to meet childcare minimum standards and National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) guidelines for child development. It can include teaching hopeful child-care administrators new skills, exposing them to unfamiliar ideas, providing the chance to practice and get feedback on particular techniques or styles of working with children, families, colleagues, and staff. It is also the vision of NSHES to facilitate ways in which participants can give and gain feedback for their work by incorporating working groups, such as Professional Learning Communities (PLC) within their organization.
