Anyone who has worked in child care of any kind knows that there will be a turnover on the children that are enrolled. Even if you haven’t worked in child care, your child’s class ever seems to stay the same does it?
One would be surprised about the turnover of staff in child care centers as well. Those of us who have managed centers know what it’s like to have to interview, hire, run background checks and train a new employee. Anyone who runs a small business knows this too and has to deal with employee turnover.
This not only takes up a large amount of time and effort, but it is also very costly. According to the University of California Berkeley, over half of the teaching staff and over half of the directors they interviewed in 1996 had left their centers in the year 2000. Only half of those who left remained working in the child care industry.
Imagine for a second that you are in charge of a small business. You have been in business for two years and are well insured (thanks to your partnership with Southern Colorado Insurance Center!) and you have 10 full-time employees which includes two assistant managers. According to the time frame, you will have to hire and train replacements for 4-5 employees and 1 assistant manager in the next year and a half, if not sooner!
The problem of staff turnover falls into the category of Risk Management. We at Southern Colorado Insurance Center work with you and your small business to make sure that you are covered and prepared for many issues like this.
