About Our Faculty & Staff

A loving, dedicated, Christian teaching staff has been trained to promote the best development of your child. Each member of our staff is motivated by their desire to serve God and to share His love with your child. We are very fortunate to have such a well-qualified staff, some with advanced degrees. Our staff is CPR/First Aid certified and Department of Justice background checked. We are also blessed with a very low staff turnover rate, which ensures the quality and consistency of our programs.

Preschool teachers and aides have a minimum of 12 units in Early Childhood Education (which is required by the State of California to teach in a preschool class setting), hold an Early Childhood Certificate, and have participated in specialized training.
