Teacher Training and Survey

Meet with your teaching staff to get the most out of this
article.

1. Before the Meeting — Two weeks before this
meeting, photocopy a “Parent Survey” for each child in your
program. Give the surveys to teachers to give to parents as they
drop off their children. Have teachers request that parents
complete the surveys and return them at the end of the hour to a
central collection place such as the church office. Tally
individual class results to help you know how to train specific
teachers. Tally the overall results to bring to the meeting.

2. Yes or No — As teachers arrive, give them
each a photocopy of this article. Begin the meeting by asking God
to help you discern whether you’re meeting parents’ needs-and how
to do that better.

Read aloud each question in the “Taking a Closer Look” section.
Together answer each question. Then report how parents answered
overall.

3. Team Attack — Form teams of no more than
four to tackle areas of improvement. Equally divide areas of need
and assign them to groups so each area is covered. Then have groups
think of ways to improve their areas. Have groups refer to
“Programming That’ll Make Parents Happy” for ideas. Ask for written
reports at the end of the meeting so you can lead your staff in
implementing changes.

    I am interested in survey which polls ideas and thoughts from kids of all ages about our Church’s ministry for Kids and Youth. So far, I have found surveys for adults…parents and staff…but, none that ask for the opinions of the people we attempt to reach with the Children and Youth Ministry programs. Any ideas would be most helpful!
