Professional Development Day (August 19, 2019):
Our staff at St. Albert Day Care Society participate in a professional development day annually. This year we had the opportunity to enjoy two great workshops.
Inspired Minds presented “Where the Wild Things Are”: Providing Effective Active Supervision (Standards 1 & 2). Implementing effective active supervision is vital to providing a safe environment for children to explore and learn. By identifying the key principles of effective active supervision and learning some active supervision strategies, our team will be able to minimize accidents and incidents and be able to focus on the children’s play experiences. Participants had to opportunity to learn some tips and tricks to ensuring that they are actively supervising their classroom and that children’s play is fun, safe and full of discoveries and adventures.
Alberta Child Care Ventures presented “Being Assertive and Managing Conflict”. In this workshop, we came together as a team to become ready to turn difficult situations into positive exchanges and discovered new opportunities to improve our communications. Success in managing conflict comes from understanding how we behave, as well as how we can influence others with the tone of our voice and the language we use. We were reminded that we can make a significant difference if we approach hard conversations with a plan and a conscious effort to clearly articulate the message in a respectful and polite manner. More often than not, we will then have more meaningful and significant conversations.
