We are blessed to have dedicated, professional educators to nurture our students. Each class is staffed by a teacher and an assistant each of whom hold the credentials required by the Montgomery County Office of Child Care (OCC).

In addition, all staff members receive substantial continuing education training in early childhood education each year and maintain current certificates in First Aid, CPR and Medication Administration Authorization. Our staff of 25 includes a Music Specialist and French and Spanish Instructors.
