Spillers on the HiMama Podcast for Early Care and Education

Episode 64: Be "WUCA": Welcome, Understand, Comfort, Appreciate

Frank Spillers wants you to create a classroom environment where people (children, administrators, educators) can be engaged. "Be WUCA to yourself and the people you work with". Spillers works with different childcare providers to help them identify engagement techniques and helps them to be happy in the work they do. He often asks "Are you passionate about kids?" - if the answer is no, then Spillers says they're doing more damage to the sector than you are helping. When we have engaged people working with children, their impact is far reaching. "People will stay where they are appreciated and where they feel welcome".
