How to best use your free staff pictures and staff IDs
September 26, 2017
When your center chooses Lifetouch Preschool Portraits, there are a bounty of benefits. One of the benefits we hear positive feedback about year after year is the Complimentary Staff Package, which includes staff portraits and staff IDs.
What can you do with all of these free goodies? The possibilities are virtually endless!
Use the staff images to create an "Our Teachers" board to introduce students or visitors to the people that make a difference at your school. Include photos and bios to provide a snapshot of each staff member. This welcoming board is great for the beginning of school, or during open houses and holiday programs. Some directors bring the board out only during certain times and others make it a permanent display by the office for the entire school year.
Preschoolers are just learning letters, and while some may know sight words, they typically can't read yet. This is why instructions and curriculum often contain words as well as pictures to help a young child comprehend the information. With this in mind, a child may not know which classroom is theirs, especially if they all look similar. Adding one of the freebie teacher photos on the doorway helps direct children and parents to where they need to go, eliminating confusion and worry.
Students' safety is a top concern, and teachers' IDs make it easy for parents and other staff to know who works there and who doesn't. The complimentary teacher IDs offer an easy way to give everyone at your center peace of mind. Plus, many retail stores and restaurants provide educators with discounts. Teachers simply need to show their IDs to save money while out and about.
Marketing and promotion
Having access to professional portraits of staff is incredibly useful when it comes to marketing your preschool program and communicating to current and prospective families. For example, you can use the images in new teacher announcements or in recognition of professional achievements in newsletters or on social media. Another fun idea would be to start a "teacher of the month" program and use the photos to promote the monthly nominee.
Of course these are just a few of the most popular uses for teacher portraits and IDs, but there are many more. Feel free to get creative and customize them to your school's needs!
