Training in the Early Bird Club
The development support of the employees already starts at the initial training, to which we attach particular importance. First and foremost, the values of the Early Bird Club are passed on: flat hierarchies, openness, asking questions and a positive error culture. On the day of introduction we welcome all new employees.
For a smooth start in the Early Bird Club, the newcomers will receive a training folder and the pedagogical concept. All questions are answered here from A to Z. In addition, experienced colleagues accompany the newly starting employees in the first weeks and months in the form of a sponsorship programme. They are always available to answer practical questions in everyday life.
We offer our teachers professional guidance and support during the year of recognition, so that nothing stands in the way of long-term cooperation. That is why we have developed a concept for qualified practical instructions: Experienced practical instructors accompany the trainees, work closely with the technical academies, also provide expert advice in the selection of the subject matter and support in the preparation of the actual specialist work.

What institutes say about us
In the educational facilities of Early Bird Club I could observe during some seminar days, as a lecturer and coach, how appreciatively the contact with each other is arranged. I was fascinated by the exemplary multilingualism of the professionals. Of course, language and communication at the highest level are designed in the Early Bird Club. The pedagogical staff is currently working on the research and is implementing it in the pediatric everyday life, according to the descriptions of the seminar participants, exemplarily for the children and their families. I can highly recommend Early Bird Club as an employer and service provider to all pedagogical specialists and families: from the first telephone contact to the planning to the general conditions on the seminar days, the cooperation with the management Mrs. Annett Ewert was professional. Exemplary for all facilities is the hiring of a social assistant, who relieves the burden and creates a lot of freedom for working with the children. Many thanks at this point to the management and to the committed specialists for their work on the future – our children!
