EES staff have finished their first week of Pre-service training and we are halfway through the second! We started with a kick-off Staff Retreat on Monday, August 20th at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole, NH. with two dynamic workshops: “Gender is On the Agenda!” with Kari Smith and “The Multi-Generational Workplace” with Karen Blumberg and Jennifer Jacobs, and continued through the week to build our skills at “Supporting Children’s Social and Emotional Development with the Pyramid Model”, “Navigating Child Plus Data System”, “CPR/First-Aid”, and “Infectious Diseases, Blood Borne Pathogens, Hand washing”, with RN Cindy Twombley. Other workshop topics, provided by EES staff included Health and Safety Emergency Preparedness, Nutrition and the Child Care Food Program.
This week we are learning more about teaching children’s social and emotional skills, along with conducting open houses, attending the WSESU Annual District Meeting, and starting our FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL ON AUGUST 30!
