Tips for Minimizing the Impact of Staff Change

by Cathy Abraham

What are the main things parents want to know when there is a teacher change at the center?

  1. That their child will still be well taken care of, and...
  2. That the management team is capable and competent and will select and train the best candidate(s) for the job.

Since some staff turnover is inevitable, what can we do to minimize the impact on the children, families and the center?

Prepare for and accept change. It's inevitable. Your attitude and your actions will determine how the center fares during these times.
