Tips for engaging with families and growing your child care center
Parents of young children are constantly inundated with information and are often balancing multiple children, work, and other elements of a busy life. Having a regular, single point of communication from the childcare center that includes important and relevant information can go a long way in easing the burdens on parents.
Over time, a school or center develops a particular culture, refines processes, and establishes traditions and ways to connect with families. As new teachers and staff members join your school or center, it is important that they are seamlessly integrated into the school community.
Professional learning and growth for staff members are important components to creating high-quality learning environments, building a positive school culture, and promoting staff retention. Ongoing feedback and yearly evaluations can set an important foundation for a cycle of continual professional learning.
