Overview

 

 

Welcome to your New Hire Orientation. If you have been given access to this site it is because you have successfully completed our screening and hiring process and you have done something that impressed us!

Lets start with one thing:  Narrative

 

Narrative is the story that we tell ourselves about ourselves.  Its our story.  

 

Social scientists have found that the number one factor that influences our behaviors is the story we tell ourselves about ourself. 

 

What we need you to know to start off is that YOU ARE IMPORTANT!  You are not a glorified babysitter.  You are Chapter one in the stories of the children in your care!  You MAKE A HUGE difference.  Today, many of the things that you do in your life are because of how you were treated in your first 5 years.  The first 5 years of your life make more difference in the story you tell yourself than any other years.

 

So are you important??? 

 

Its likely you will be the most important influence in the life of these children in their ENTIRE LIVES!  

 

SO with that, be careful what narrative you give these children.  Be positive, focus on the good that they do.  

 

You are writing their Chapter 1.  Write it well!  These modules will give you the basics on how to do this.

 

You are a CHILD CARE PROFESSIONAL, you are a Narrative Builder, and for some a Narrative Changer!  

 

We want to welcome you to the Raising Arizona Preschool (RAP) Team.  This Orientation Training will educate you on policy, procedure, and RAP's philosophy of early childhood education.  This training is self-paced, however needs to be completed within 10 days of hire and will count towards 10 hours of training out of the 18 you annually need to have.  You will find this training interactive and informative. If you need assistance or clarification on any part of this training please talk to your management team, we are here to help you complete this training and become a successful team member.

This training is text based, videos, and self-reflections, with a quiz and essay question for each Module. Please be sure you complete all sections before proceeding to the next Module (so you will complete an essay question and quiz for each module).  Your work will be viewed by a Training Staff member.

Please do not skip videos, they are fantastic learning tools!  We will see if you do not complete the videos and you will have to repeat the module. *Keep an eye out for "easter egg" bonuses hidden throughout the training.  Do not tell anyone when you find them except as instructed. 

We look forward to learning, sharing, growing, and working with you.
