Managing staff can be a challenge by itself.  Add children into the mix and you've really got your hands full!  As you have undoubtedly experienced, running a child care program requires business knowledge as well as a good understanding of curriculum, teaching methods, facility management, first aid, names of all the Ninja Turtles...whew, it's an exhausting list!
