Management and Administration of Infant Program Manuals

Management and Administration of Infant Program Manuals

Evaluating Program Manuals. Due by Day 7. The purpose of the family and staff manuals are to provide written documentation of the policies and procedures used in the decision making and daily operations of a program. These in-house publications should be grounded in the program’s core values, vision, and mission while providing specific guidelines for how it will abide by applicable laws and regulations. The formulation, implementation, and evaluation of these materials are critical to the program administrator role. These manuals are invaluable tools for program success and, for that reason, they deserve careful thought and consideration. Thoughtfully created policies and procedures guide families and staff and contribute to the program’s smooth operation by creating shared understandings.
