Wellness at Wu Yee

Wu Yee’s teachers and managers from centers in the Bayview, Hunters Point, and Visitacion Valley Neighborhoods participated in a scavenger hunt as part of their wellness retreat.

Wu Yee Children’s Services held a training event for teachers and managers from centers in the Bayview, Hunters Point, and Visitacion Valley Neighborhoods, that focused on staff wellness.

Held at the Southeast Community Facility, the training included a scavenger hunt focused on team building and self-reflection on staff’s everyday activities that support Wu Yee’s mission.

The event began with a training on early childhood literacy and phonic awareness with a presenter from First 5. Next, teachers and mangers participated in a DRPD (Desired Results Developmental Profile) training with Education Manger, Shelly Ehret. DRPD is an early assessment tool developed by the California Department of Education for young children and their families to be used to inform instruction and program development. After the scavenger hunt, Lakeshore Learning presented materials on literacy and each teacher received a thank you bag. The event concluded with a raffle of classroom supplies.

"Staff Wellness is one of the key aspects of a successful program,” said regional manager, Joyce Young. “It's wonderful to get all the teachers and managers together to focus on their own wellness while having fun with each other.”
