🔍 Key Takeaways from Amanda Shroyer

Tips from Amanda:

  • Feedback is key – make sure to get it from both your families and your staff!
  • Build on the strengths of your team members. If you have someone who is great at budgeting, let them own that piece!
  • Visual markers are really helpful for encouraging social distancing at the center. You can get really creative about it with stickers as physical markers.
  • Loop parents in to support with providing COVID-19 supplies – it helps spread out getting more materials and gets the community involved.
  • Calm, clear and direct communication is important when there is a change in procedure or schedule. Get real with your team with where you are too as it builds trust.
