The staff of Life’s Little Treasures Daycare recently completed its yearly first aid and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation training, as well as fire extinguisher training.

This is in addition to the Safe Sleep training that all staff is required to complete.

Members of the Markle Volunteer Fire Department came to the daycare to train the staff on how to put out a fire using a fire extinguisher. Afterwards, they treated the kids to checking out the fire truck.

Staff members Andrea Hebert and Amanda Shroyer are part of a 12-month small group professional development about the Six Essential Program Practices for Relationship based Infant/Toddler care.

Life’s Little Treasures Daycare is a Paths to Quality level three facility. These trainings and professional development opportunities are part of its mission to create an environment that nurtures creativity, builds wonder and loves like Jesus does, say daycare officials.

The daycare is a ministry of TurnPointe Community Church, in Markle.
