Staff

Our teachers make the biggest difference.  A teacher takes a seed of PROMISE, tends it with encouragement, and watches as it grows...knowing that one day it will be the fruit that feeds the world.

Our teacher to child ratios is often lower than required by the state, which allows the teachers more one on one interaction.  All of our teachers are certified or trained in early childhood education and all classrooms have two teachers in each room.  All staff members receive at least 25 + hours of early childhood professional development annually.  Our staff turnover rates are often extremely low.  Children thrive with consistency and we understand what a large role a teacher plays in a child’s life.  You will be warmly greeted by your child’s teacher each day.    

The lead teachers are required to be educated and certified in Early Childhood Education.  All lead teachers will have at least one of the following: a standard Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood with a current Preschool-4TH grade teacher's license (or related field), Child Development Associates Degree, Associate's Degree in Early Childhood, with at least 1-2 years of teaching experience.  In some cases, we may allow other qualifications.
