Staff Development Day

On Friday, March 22nd, we had an amazing staff development day focusing on training on the Pyramid Model. The Pyramid Model is a comprehensive, multi-tiered framework of evidence-based practices that promotes the social, emotional, and behavioral development of young children. The emphasis of this framework is to support all children at the universal level, thereby decreasing the need for more intensive intervention. In fact, when implementing the Pyramid Model framework effectively, only a very small percent of children will need intensive intervention. The guiding principles of this model  include promoting skill building with enough intensity to affect change, implementing strategies in the context of naturally occurring routines and environments, and modifying strategies so they are responsive to the cultural and linguistic diversity of families and children. 

Also a big congratulations to all of our Educators that completed their Medication Administration Training (MAT) as well! This 8-hour training enables us to continue to administer medication in our program:
