Childcare Educator Time Management Workshop
The role of a childcare educator can be quite hectic, there are lot of activities that need to be managed and completed in each room on a day to day basis. Being able to plan and control your day is paramount to providing high quality childcare and education.
This purposefully designed and relevant Time Management Workshop for Childcare Educators, is designed to help them understand why they struggle to get a lot of those important things done. It provides them with specific methodologies and processes to make getting things done easier. They will also learn how to reduce procrastination in their day.
The workshop also provides them with key people skills that enable then to have a better understanding of the team members they work with, the parents and children and how to identify and communicate with them based on their primary learning and behavioural styles. The key here is, the better you can communicate and manage the people around you, the less interruptions you will have and the more time you gain back for yourself, to get those important things done.
We will also focus on why they struggle to get all of their activities completed each day, providing them with some fast to implement methods of getting those important things done.
The Childcare Educator session was designed as a request from centre owners and directors, as they found the time management courses they have been to previously, were not relevant to the educators who work in the room with the children.
We will teach them how to Stop Being A Zoo Keeper!
The session covers the 4 Inescapable Components of Controlling Your Day;
- Time Management
- Self Discipline
- People Management Skills
In this workshop, educators will learn;
- The 3 Key Road Blocks in their day.
- How to create a workable plan for their day.
- How to make the best use of their weekly child story writing & planning hours
- How to avoid Procrastination
- Significantly reduce Interruptions and Distractions in their day.
- How to ensure other people do not impact on their daily plan.
We identify the items that the team members struggle to get done, we show them why this happens and how to rectify it. We look at why we procrastinate and keep putting off things that need to be done.
We will also teach them how to Eat That Frog!
During the workshop, Peter uses the feedback from individuals working environment, to help them build new time management skills.
This is a face to face session providing participants with an fun and very useful break from the standard childcare training programs, whilst at the same time giving them some very practical and useable knowledge and skills.
The workshop is available in-house in 2 formats;
- A single 3hr workshop with the investment being $595.00 inc GST per centre, plus materials and travel if required.
- 2 x 2hr workshops, where, in the first session we identify why the Educators struggle to get everything done, and provide them with some key processes that will enable them to focus on ensuring the important things are done. We also provide them with methods on how to utilise their non-contact hours more effectively.
In the second session, the educators have the opportunity to follow up on the implementation of the processes learnt in session 1 and then we spend more time learning the important people skills required to improve your time management abilities.

Feedback from Childcare Centre Directors.
The best PD training session we have done.
Savita – St Albans Wilston ELC
We have sent our team members to time management courses in the past and they weren’t really relevant. This workshop is totally relevant to the educators and gives them practical things to implement immediately. Very engaging and entertaining.
