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!
