Early Education Center Teachers & Aides

Each group of children has a certified teacher plus at least one teacher aide. Our teachers are professionals with college degrees and specific training in early childhood. They are able to promote the acceptance of self and others, encourage problem solving, communication and provide a caring, consistent role model for young children. Your child’s teacher will be your main contact. However, the director is also available to confer with you.

Four head teachers all have education and/or early childhood degrees. Student teachers, practicum and work study students assist with the children while learning about child development and the education processes of young children. The director has a master’s degree in education with a concentration in early childhood.
