We employ people who are caring, energetic and enthusiastic, who understand child development, who can apply their knowledge in the classroom and who respect each child as an individual. We seek employees who value working as a team with parents and colleagues. We select our staff carefully in order to provide the best possible care and education for the children. The director and teachers have degrees or advanced coursework in early childhood education and experience as teachers of young children.
