EduCare Parent and Staff Handbooks
The center is staffed by an administrator, director, assistant director, lead teachers, assistant teachers, a cook, and students of the college early childhood education program or related majors. All employees will meet the criteria of the quality program for each child. All are required to have physicals, tuberculin testing, KBI checks, and in-service training.
Child care staff members have a vital influence on a child’s behavior and development. Teachers are selected who have formal education training and previous teaching experience. Care is taken to select teachers who are qualified to plan and direct activities and experiences which meet the cognitive, physical, and social needs of young children.
Practicum students, community and college volunteers, and parents will, at times, be working with the children to enhance and expand curriculum opportunities. The Center is fortunate to have their assistance.
Teachers work as a team, jointly planning daily learning activities that encourage creative expression, stimulate learning, and promote a warm, flexible climate for children. EduCare teachers have knowledge of developmental needs of children and plan their programs to meet these needs.
