INFORMATION

LOCATIONS & STAFF

OUR STAFF
The quality and effectiveness of After School Program services for children are directly related to the skills and personal characteristics of the staff. Recruiting, selecting, training and supporting the staff are essential, interrelated processes in ensuring the success and integrity of children's programs. The leaders are required to have experience in working with children, knowledge of recreation activities, demonstrate the character values, and must possess certain qualities in order to serve as role models for children.

Staff members are selected for personal qualities (i.e. warmth, sympathy, and the ability to relate positively with children). Staff receives training in many areas to include but not limited to: safety, nutrition, health, child abuse, child/adult communication and activities including arts and crafts, physical activities and educational games. Employees must maintain 10 hours of certification in addition to being First Aid/CPR trained. Our Site Supervisors attend continuous trainings in order to be more effective with the children.
