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 to learn best practices, teaching methods, and techniques in early childhood education. OPK engages specialist teachers for music, creative movement, recorder instruction,  and Spanish.
