Faculty & Staff

All head teachers have a Bachelors Degree and Pennsylvania Certification in Early Childhood Education. Additionally, one-third of our faculty hold an advanced degree. The average tenure for staff is 17+ years. Teachers participate in professional development seminars and attend local and regional conferences annually to learn the best practices, teaching methods, and techniques in Early Childhood Education.
