Our Staff Mission Statement
Bringing kindness, compassion, and respect to all.
Whole Staff Values
Here at Wellspring Preparatory Academy, we know that working together is key for a positive, warm, and compassionate atmosphere.
Our Whole Staff Values has 7 powerful principles that enable everyone to be in a place that is supportive, empowered, and respected. Let’s dive into the details!
1) Prioritizing onboarding and training
We believe that prior knowledge and training are key to cultivating a successful experience. We take the needed time to onboard each and every employee for each of their roles and responsibilities. We work together to go through each handbook, guideline, licensing regulation, and task assigned to you until you feel as though you have mastery and are fully empowered to create your own path. Once you finish onboarding training, you will be part of a mentor program where you have a team around you answering your questions and guiding you through new experiences throughout the year. Everything from how the cleaning materials work to documentation of a child’s developmental stages.
2) Creating a comfortable working environment
Have you ever worked at a place where it was kind of uncomfortable? Maybe you didn’t feel listened to when you brought up concerns or gossip was really intense? Here at Wellspring, we are dedicated to creating a work environment where everyone is respected.
Set clear goals
Be diverse and inclusive
Have a good sense of humor
Establish a zero tolerance policy
Recognize employees' values.
Accept and utilize feedback
Be together with you.
3) Conducting regular check-ins
From daily check-ins to establishing one on one meetings on a schedule, we are here to support you and your goals.
4) Encouraging collaborations
The Whole Child Curriculum shows the value of collaboration. In the classroom, every activity and engagement is for the advancement of the children’s future developmental goals. Same with you! Our break room has a board listing out our future goals and our accomplishments. Accomplishments are celebrated and everyone knows what the next goals are! Each idea and thought shared can move us closer to our goals.
5) Facilitates opportunities for learning
Beyond the standard training of being a classroom teacher, we are dedicated to bringing in experts in other fields to help our employees gain skills that can help guide you through your whole life. We offer non-mandatory after hours classes on taxes, google docs/sheets, yoga, applying to advanced learning opportunities, hiking/camping how to’s, and more!
6) Collaborative foundations
Festivals, traditions, and a natural rhythm to the day is important to Wellspring’s foundation. We fully support creating fun, engaging, and inclusive traditions unique to Wellspring!
7) Clear Communication
Wellspring is an open door community. All are welcome to chat with us about anything that is on their mind. We promise clear, compassionate and respectful communication and follow up actions.
We are excited to meet our future early education leaders!
