STAFF

Our dedicated teachers provide children with love and security while responding to their social, emotional, and physical needs.

Teachers work alongside children supporting individual learning styles and helping them to develop independence and self-confidence.

Our staff’s goal is to help children reach their full potential by helping them form the building blocks for their future education.
