According to Education Next, 47% of teachers miss 10 days or more each school year.
That number jumps to 61% in schools serving the underprivileged.
A teacher missing a day causes a ripple effect impacting:
• Childcare center directors
Even planned days off impact everyone, too, especially if there’s a new face in the classroom, an inexperienced substitute or — worse yet — no substitute, which means the center staff has to “fill in.”
We’ve been there.
“Subbing” is one of the areas that sets education apart from other professions because the sub is required to be there when a teacher is out. They’re there to follow the plans left by the teacher and make sure students continue their learning.
Unfortunately, not all of them are qualified or trained to be in the classroom.

One of the top challenges faced by early childhood owners and leaders is the requirement to meet ratios with quality staff, especially when teachers get sick or have personal emergencies.
This situation often pulls leaders away from their important high-value activities and into the classroom to cover ratio.
The best solution is for child care managers to have a solid back-up system in place. Teachers for Tomorrow is the best back-up system your school or center can have.
They provide a reliable, trained, high-quality and professional substitute teacher service for the early childhood industry.
I highly recommend
Teachers for Tomorrow!
