ECD BUSINESS PROGRAMMEEmpowering Principals to successfully run their Centres as sustainable, independent and financially viable concerns.
ECD Business Course
1 Course per annum
Once a year Masikhule runs a seven-module course for pre-school Principals focusing on administrative and office management skills, financial management, human resources, positive discipline and leadership skills. This highly practical course, which includes follow-up mentorship and in-service training visits, enables delegates to successfully manage and sustain an Early Learning Centre or crèche.
The course includes three pillars:
1. BUSINESS AND OFFICE MANAGEMENT
2. FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT
3. LEGAL/ HUMAN RESOURCES/ LEARNER MANAGEMENT
Principals of ECD Centres who attend the Business Management course each receive a kit which includes:
• Files, dividers and plastic sleeves
• Petty cash box and receipt book
• Office stationery
• Reference material, etc
During the course we also develop business letterheads so that their communication is presented professionally. Letter writing, time-keeping, learning techniques and conflict-resolution are some of the skills that are imparted during this hands-on training programme.
