Completed the Play Monitor class! NOW WHAT??!!!

Great turn-out for the Play Monitor training, yay!!! This goes to show how many great people are out there that want to give back to the community by keeping public play parties safe! Thank you to everyone for your interest and participation.

BUT THAT’S JUST THE BEGINNING…

It’s impossible to cover all the necessary info and topics even in a three hour class. While theory is important as well as understanding the basics, Play Monitor training really happens in real time out at events, learning from skilled monitors who can help you. We ask that you attend at least six events in training as an “observer” before you decide to take on the role of monitor and always ask the advice of trained and skilled Veteran Play Monitors.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO NEXT?… Read the rest of this entry
