A daycare director oversees the day-to-day operations of a daycare center. The daycare center not only provides parents with adult supervision of their children, but they are often expected to offer early childhood education programs to prepare the child for kindergarten and elementary school. It is the job of the daycare director to ensure that these expectations are met in a safe and nurturing environment.
