More than 200 center directors are igniting a spirited conversation about the upcoming CD Summit over on Yammer: everything from region pride to how their center exemplifies our service values. This week’s topic is accreditation. Readers are sharing their tips for connecting the meaning of accreditation with families:
- “[Make] it evident in your center, [get] kids excited for your visit and [make] sure reading materials is [sic] available to families. The more you talk to the kids about it the more the parents start asking about it.” – Danielle Zakowski
- “We have been an accredited center for over seven years and the parents see it when they have gone through our programs.” – Debi Agabiti
- “We talk about it in our newsletters…in all tour packets…during inquiring calls and tours…” – Kelli Watson
Regions can earn GlowBucks by having the best service value post of the week or the spirit post that generates the most likes and comments. GlowBucks go toward each region’s total score for the SPARK Spirit Award.
Holly Cessna earned a GlowBuck for region 6 last week with her post about service value #1 – relationships. “I build great relationships by genuinely caring for my families and having that show in all my interactions with them,” she wrote. “We celebrate the joys in their lives and comfort them in any sorrow. When our mommies have new babies, we send the family a gift to welcome the new blessing to our family. We treat them and care for them from our hearts.”
Region 6 showed their spirit and spunk through district manager Nancy Sears’ video of their karaoke moment at the 2014 Field Leader Summit. Nancy’s post generated the most likes (21), shares (1), and comments (7) of any Summit-specific posts. Region 6 really rallied around Nancy’s post and echoed her enthusiasm for the Summit.
