Class management is one of the key components of teaching practice as it can ensure the proper development and academic achievement of preschool children. Teachers should have a clear plan of daily activities to make sure that appropriate goals are set based on each child’s needs, and that students’ progress is managed accordingly. The establishment of routines is essential for children’s growth as students obtain a sense of stability and security, which helps them be fully engaged in classroom activities. Good planning, keeping the record, and reflection on achieved results are components of an effective purposeful program responsive to preschoolers’ needs.
Program management involves a combination of activities and procedures teachers need to follow. The development and implementation of routines are critical for pre-school children who need to feel secure in the classroom environment and trust their teacher. These routines include greeting (that is positive and engaging based on each child’s background and needs), daily activities including food logs, hygiene activities, naps, fire drill logs, and academic activities. Teachers need to have a plan before the start of each day that highlights the points mentioned above. Keeping records of accidents, attendance, and daily health/safety checks is another element of adequate program management. As mentioned above, plans should be based on children’s backgrounds and needs and concentrate on students’ progress and wellbeing. The implementation of the plan and reflection is equally important since the teacher should identify the strengths and weaknesses of the plan and shape it accordingly.
In conclusion, program management is instrumental in achieving teaching goals and ensuring preschoolers’ progress. The basic components of this kind of management are planning, implementation and reflection with the focus on routines and each students’ needs. Teachers need to have a detailed plan before they enter the classroom in the morning to be ready to provide high-quality educational services and assist their students to development.
