Head Start, EHS summer programs must
complete Active Supervision Course by June 24
Keeping children safe is a top priority for everyone. The Head Start Performance Standards require that "no child shall be left alone or unsupervised while under their care." Active Supervision is the most effective strategy for creating a safe environment and preventing injuries in young children. PSESD Early Learning program has developed an online training module outlining the six components of Active Supervision.
As part of the follow-up to our Federal Review, we are requesting that Head Start and Early Head staff of summer programs complete one of the following online courses by Tuesday, June 24:
- Active Supervision for Center Leaders (this is for Center Directors, Center Coordinators and Supervisors only)
- Active Supervision (all other staff)
The online courses can be found at www.LearnWA.org under the "Early Learning Administrative 2014" category near the top of the main page.
This training is mandatory for all Head Start and Early Head Start on an annual basis. Please have your staff review the attached procedures and complete the online module. One course is specifically designed for Center Directors and Supervisors, and contains an Active Supervision Program Reflection Tool. After you and your staff have completed the training modules, please implement your Active Supervision Reflection Tool.
If you need any assistance or have any questions, please contact your Regional Education Coordinator.
Thank you for your constant vigilance in keeping children safe!
