Our staff is comprised of dedicated early childhood professionals who have been with us for the past five to eleven years. They are passionate about our mission and the development of the whole child; spiritual, emotional, physical, and cognitive. Professional development and monthly staff meetings ensure that our staff maintains a level of professionalism with the most up to date trends in early childhood. Our staff begins our day prior to the arrival of the students with a morning prayer and overview of the day. Working together as a team we strive and succeed in providing a comfortable and conducive learning environment for our students and their families.
Continuity is of the utmost importance to us. Each classroom consists of a teacher and a teacher assistant. The state regulations require one adult per ten children for this age group. We exceed this regulation with a ratio of 1:6 and 1:7. We also have two consistent substitute teachers that the children become acquainted with during the first few weeks of school as they serve as extra staff during this transition.
The entire staff is trained in Infant/Child CPR and First Aid. This exceeds the state regulations for early childhood. The staff is also trained in the administration of medication for life threatening conditions annually by our nurse consultant for the specific students necessitating these medications.
