Social Media Policy For EC Centers

The PSD EC Cabinet has approved a Social Media Policy for our EC centers.  This expanded policy sets forth ‘best practices’ in the use of social media in the early childhood setting to protect children and parents’ rights as well as the integrity of the center itself. Portions of the statement reflect recent changes in California Licensing regulations and interpretations regarding teacher’s use of cellphones in the classroom as a ‘lack of appropriate supervision’.  The Cabinet strongly encourages all our EC centers to review and include this policy statement in your staff handbooks. The link is a writable PDF.  Once you download the document, you will be able to add your school information before you print or re-save the document.

Last spring, we partnered with Professor Carolyn Shiery from Concordia University Irvine to come up with effective marketing materials for our early childhood centers.  She and her team of students have prepared for us a beautiful logo; PSD early childhood brand “Lutheran Preschools:  Growing Minds and Kind Hearts”; marketing materials including a video, brochure, and postcards; and a sample of a future survey that each center can customize for their school at no cost.  Feel free to download and use them as resources for your center. We pray that these resources will be a blessing for your ministry for years to come! 

School Ministries has entered into a partnership with Procare Solutions for our ECE Centers and School Age Care.  Procare Solutions is a child care management software used by more than 37,000 child care businesses across the country. Procare gives you the power to manage every aspect of your center or school, regardless of the size and structure of your organization, so that you can focus on what matters the most - the children in your care.
