Updates on In-Service Training

posted Oct 16, 2015, 8:20 AM by Kim Buckley
All teachers at Binkley earn 10 hours (or more!) of in-service training each year. Required training sessions include First Aid/CPR (every 2 years) and Darkness to Light (every 3 years). However, we also have opportunities to learn new skills and strategies and different teaching techniques from several local agencies and conferences which are offered in our area. In addition, each of our teachers periodically visits another program to learn how different preschools operate and to gain insights from being an 'observer'.

This month, 3 of our 4's teachers had an opportunity to spend the morning with their fellow teaching professionals at the annual Durham Orange Preschool Association(DOPA) conference. While there, they had a chance to network with other teachers and they attended 3 training sessions:
Extending Outdoor Play
Temperaments in Children (and adults!)
Music in the Classroom

Many thanks  to the Parent Board for making this training a priority and to our substitute teachers who filled in for our teachers.
