Educators with Playful Hearts and Teaching Minds

It’s one thing for a company to declare it’s goals and objectives, but it’s another thing completely for them to actually deliver. And it’s not to say that the a company’s ownership lacks ‘intention’ or ‘desire’ – the problem lies in the fact the key components are not the right fit. For as is the case with most organizations and most professions, the 20 / 80 rule is usually present. That is – only 20% of the accountants, lawyers, doctors, teachers, engineers, etc. – really love what they do and are really good at what they do. While the other 80% would prefer to be doing something else, and most often ‘should’ be doing something else. And, in an industry such as childcare, in which the entry point is easily accessible, this rule is very prevalent – but often for other reasons. Our Company Identity statement declares, both a ‘Playful Heart’ and a ‘Teaching Mind’ is a pre-requisite for any professional to become a KiddieKidz Certified Educator. Why? Because without those character traits, the ability to impart the ‘joy of learning’ to child is impossible. And if that is the case, then full potential of child’s ability to learn throughout their lives has been compromised. But as we identified above, it’s one thing to make a declaration, but it’s another to actually deliver. Therefore, KiddieKidz, having utilized various human resource evaluation tools in the past, that individually all had some deficiencies – has, with the assistance of a recruiting and training expert, developed the KiddieKidz ‘Hiring with EASE Process ’. This Educator Assessment, Selection & Evaluation process ensures that the various character traits of those with ‘Playful Hearts’ as well as both the qualifications and know-how of a ‘teaching mind’ are all resident in every KiddieKidz Certified Educator. As a result, our parents are guaranteed that their children will be loved, taught the joy of learning, and – get ‘the great start to the future’ that every child deserves.
