Kitchen and Maintenance staff are excluded from training but should still report to work at the above times.
In order to be compensated during our closure, you must complete at least 15 hours of online training. The Funshine training for your age group is MANDATORY. The remaining trainings can be completed through Better Kid Care. It is important that we DO NOT have children in the building during that time, so please make appropriate arrangements for childcare on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
Mandatory Funshine Express Training - complete and request a completion certificate. These should be completed ASAP so the certificate will be here for payroll. You only need to complete one for your age group.
