A sneak peek inside the episode:
“Childcare staff are really in the protection business. They’re in the business of protecting kids. And one of the things that we always make sure that we do is empower them to protect. So I think the idea of protection truthfully is so important to really relay on to staff that are working in childcare to say your ultimate job is to protect these kids, and we want to give you the skills, knowledge, training, equipment, and everything you need to do that.”
