Staff Development Day

On Friday, August 14th, LVCC centers were closed for our annual Staff Development Day. Staff received training on fire safety, blood borne pathogens, imaginative use of art materials, teaching nutrition through interaction, bully prevention, hands on math and science, and more!

During the retreat, we celebrated 54 staff members who have been with the company five years or more. Those celebrating 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 years are shown in the picture below. Two staffers, Janet Soos (VP of Early Childhood Services) and Carry Ackinclose Gerber (Marketing & Communications Manager) were honored with special awards. Janet was given the Founders Lifetime Service Award and Carry was given the President's / CEO's Award for Individual Growth, Creativity and Innovation.

Thank you to Valley Youth House for hosting us at their beautiful retreat -- Camp Fowler. And a special thank you to our families for their patience and understanding. Our retreat was energizing, and we look forward to bringing enthusiasm and new skills back to your children!

Cooperative Games

School-age students enrolled in LVCC at Stones Crossing (Easton) are shown here playing a "cooperative game" called Circle-to-Circle. The objective is to pass the hola hoop around the circle without breaking hands. Cooperative games are physical and mental activities intended to teach teamwork, leadership and problem-solving skills. LVCC school-age staff underwent training last year to learn and incorporate cooperative games into their curriculum. A grant from Hospital Central Services Education Fund helped LVCC purchase equipment.
