Have Fun Offer staff fun summer related activities like “Frozen Fridays” with frozen treats, Beach theme days, of fun centre outings if possible.
Host Training/Edcamps Whether your center is open or is closed for the summer months, educators will benefit from extra training or an Educamp where they share ideas and best practices. Employees who are constantly building up their skills and knowledge will be more engaged.
Schedule Team Events Barbeques or potlucks are a great way to involve staff and their families in the summer!
Utilize Social Media Facebook and Pinterest are two of the most popular ways for educators to share their ideas. Invite staff to share instructional tips, art projects, share photos or posts of summer activities on your centres page as well.
