  • Meet Our Staff

  • Many of your children will be with us for the major portion of the day. Most of our teachers have been with us for many years, which gives your child an advantage over other schools which have a high staff turnover. Approximately 2.2 million people work in the early childhood workforce caring for almost 15 million children under age six. For this reason our staff is chosen with meticulous care. Our head teachers are experienced with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. More importantly, they will not only provide a learning environment, but a loving one. Each staff member has proven to be patient, loving and understanding. They are all certified in First Aid and CPR and every staff member has been fingerprinted and has had a full background check. Our staff undergoes 30-100 hours of training per school year to keep up with the latest research in child development.
