Safe, Healthy, Learning Environment
To establish and maintain a safe, healthy learning environment
My goal is to provide a safe environment and teach children safe practices to prevent and reduce injuries. To do this I check all toys and equipment that children will be using for broken or missing parts often to ensure they remain safe. I ensure all chemicals and cleaning products are stored in locked cabinets to prevent poisoning. I teach children how to use playground equipment safely to reduce the risk of injury. I am certified in first aid, CPR, and Infant CPR which makes me knowledgeable of caring for accidents or injuries.

My goal is to provide an environment and practices that promote wellness and health. To do this I make sure children wash their hands upon arrival to cut down on germs being brought into the classrooms. I make sure all toys are sanitized daily to prevent the spread of germs. I wash my hands after helping children go to the bathroom or wipe noses. I wash my hands before applying gloves when serving food. I also make sure that all meals that are served meet USDA requirements.

My goal is to create an enjoyable environment that encourages play, exploration, and learning. To accomplish this I provide a classroom schedule. I provide age appropriate activities that challenge children but not above their level. Provide lots of gross and fine motor activities inside and outside. Provide lots of books and writing materials and give children ample time to use them. I provide whole group, small group, and work one on one with children. 270 words
