One of the most important things that early childhood educators do is protect and promote the health and safety of young children. This includes preventing harm to children from known safety risks as well as promoting children’s medical, nutrition, oral, and mental health. When you survey parents this is their number one expectation of your program.
As program directors and teachers, you must be able to protect children from harm and promote the health and well-being of not only the children and other staff members, but also the families. Whether you implement regular site safety checks or make sure proper handwashing is taking place, you are taking simple steps that can produce major health gains for your program.
Basic practices for children and adults are a critical component of quality child care and involve three essential components: education, supervision, and environment. In this webinar, Jody Martin will share ideas for you to educate not only children but their families on many health and safety related topics. There will be time for Jody to answer your questions after her presentation. Early childhood educators and administrators are invited to this valuable session.
