Recipe for an Awesome Staff

In our line of work we have found (through much trial and error) that it is extremely difficult to find quality staff.  We ask a lot of our staff because we care deeply about our clients and have built a quality program which needs to be followed out with the staff that we hire:

It is not enough for them to "be good with kids"
It is not enough for them to have experience working with special needs children
It is not enough for them to be reliable and trustworthy employees
It is not enough for them to like working with children
It is not enough for them to love children, they must love OUR children
They must be all of these things and so much more because we won't settle for anything less.
Most of all, you know you've found the right staff when they love our children so much they take time out of their vacation/holiday schedules to come back just to play with and love on OUR children!
Thank you all for not only being our best employees, but for going above and beyond.

Giving compliments is standard practice at Learning on the Log.  Many kids take these comments in stride, others get a boost of self-confidence, while some become uncomfortable with the attention.

One kid simply agrees with the compliments given to him.  The other day he was riding a bike, and we complimented him on how great he was doing.  While continuing to ride, he looked back with a big smile and said,

“Yes I am, I know I am!”
