Our lead teachers are required to have education degrees and certifications. Many of our assistant teachers are also degreed or in the process of completing a degree. In addition to the customized daily lesson plans developed for your child by the lead teacher, our faculty includes a full-time music teacher and a fitness teacher that visit all classrooms throughout the week. Our teachers are carefully mentored and coached by our Curriculum Director to assure each child has a fun learning experience.
