One key to retaining staff in the early childhood care and learning environment, is to ensure we are setting them up with the knowledge, skills, and ability to be successful in their roles and build a sense of connection/belonging to our program. Coaching is one of the best ways to impact that sense of belonging with our staff. We all know how turnover affects the bottom line of our business. Tune into our next webinar to learn more about coaching your team to success. Please share this webinar information to your ECE network. Remember as always if the scheduled time does not meet your schedule, register anyway and automatically receive the replay link.

“I think a lot of folks think that full day kindergarten is children at desks with pencils, but it's so much more than that," Oppenheimer said. "This is where they learn to interact with one another. This is where they learn to play with one another. They learn to do school, and they also begin that love of learning."
