Back to School Training!
Before bringing in the children for another year of the education that will prepare them for Kindergarten and beyond, our staff undergoes a two-week training period to refine our skills.
Our Pre-Service weeks were packed with training sessions covering all manner of topics in emergency preparedness, safety, health and nutrition among other subjects. Included in the training was practicing bleeding emergency simulations with Rescue Inc in their “Stop the Bleed” program, and participating in a full day of First-Aid/CPR training. We were also fortunate to have Capt. Mark Carignan of the Brattleboro Police Department and Assistant Fire Chief Len Howard spend a morning with us discussing emergency preparedness strategies.
We covered a lot of ground in two weeks, but despite how much had to be done, our teachers still managed to masterfully put together their classrooms in time for Open House and the first day of the new school year.
