The importance of training our team – both new and experienced – to be successful and feel valued in their role as professionals, cannot be emphasised enough. As you can see from our recent training in Ennis Road, training both the employee and the company as a whole comes with a whole lot of benefits that make everything a worthwhile investment.
At Busy Kids we offer professional development training specific to our work as practitioners to boost their confidence in their role and to help build great teams.
We were very grateful to our trainer Ken, our Education and Standards Coordinator for Busy Kids and Sonas Nursing Homes, who took the time out of his Saturday to come to Limerick. It was a very informative and interesting piece for all levels of staff. All the team felt engaged and included. Our Creche Coordinator, Therese Tutty, has been reviewing some of the evaluation sheets and the comments speaks volumes to just how meaningful the day was.
“Ken made me feel much better about our role as practitioners, something I think we all need more of. It will boost everyone on a daily basis work wise, and will build a better team. I would recommend this training to all childcare staff and would welcome further training. No improvement needed it was very interesting fun and engaging.”
“I would recommend all staff do this training, it was reassuring that head office see us as professionals in our roles”
“The trainer was very encouraging and his knowledge of the work we do, he made us feel welcome and got us to think about things”
There is a buzz around the Creches this morning (Monday 10th June). The team feedback is very much a message of respect, feeling valued, and they see Busy Kids Values are not just for children but for the staff and how we treat each other. Staff felt is was a very good use of their time and an important message in how we treat each other.
Sandra, our Creche Manager in Ennis Road, and Miriam, Our Creche Manager in Ballycummin, have both reiterated that the overall message captured on Saturday was one of positivity, respect and applying the values at all levels.
Our Creche Coordinator, Therese Tutty, also gave a powerful training on Superheros, and its safe to say all the team had a great time with this excerise and explaining what makes a superhero super. The theme of “Superhero” helped staff identify their unique strengths and capabilities and that as a team they have to think outside the box and overcome the obstacles that can challenge each of their days, yet they show unwavered commitment every day.
NOT ALL SUPERHEROS WEAR CAPES!
Thanks to Ken, Therese, Sandra, Miriam and all the team. We cant wait for this training course to be rolled out to all our creches in the following months.
