  • Please do not discuss specifics about children and families you work with 
  • It is also something we will practice when talking about our own learning and experiences while we are working and learning together
  • Also remember that your colleagues may disclose personal information. Because we want everyone to feel comfortable, please don’t share it. This is good practice for keeping information confidential.

Meeting Expectations

  • What is said here, stays here
  • Mute when not talking
  • Listen to others /One person talks at a time
  • All ideas are good ideas
