The strength of our program is the experience, expertise, and dedication of our child care staff. We support the teachers with training, resources, and the freedom to create a unique early childhood education environment. We provide many opportunities for the teachers to share ideas and grow professionally. Our teachers create a caring and nurturing atmosphere that fosters each child's creativity and positive self-image.
All child care teachers have taken and successfully completed the 90-hour child development and child care activities classes through an accredited college. In addition to the experience and age requirements, all Senior staff employees must meet the state licensing requirement for successful completion of continuing education classes, workshops, and seminars. These requirements must be updated yearly.
