Our team is made of up of experienced professionals who share our passion for helping every child reach their full potential by providing a safe, caring environment in which they can learn, play and grow. Our teachers regularly undergo training so that your child is always receiving the best care. In addition to regular training, every employee must pass a criminal background check through the Central Criminal Record Exchange and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, for a national criminal history report. We also run employee names through the child abuse and neglect registry. Keeping children safe while they are in our care is our most important responsibility.
