We have a team of teachers who are outstanding in their field and possess a desire for continued professional growth. We share a common mission of ensuring that each child in our care has a wonderful preschool experience in which he or she is loved and challenged. Our Pre-Kindergarten teacher has a bachelor of Science Degree in Christian Education from Texas Wesleyan University, others have countless hours in training in Early Childhood Development; each teacher is CPR and first aid certified. All teachers receive continuing education hours each year through in-house and out sourced training, mentoring and workshops. Our teachers are privileged to watch our families grow over time.
We view parents as critical partners in each child’s education. Our doors are open for parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles to visit with us and share their lives with us. We invite you to schedule a time with your child’s teacher to come read a story, share a snack, lead an art project, or share your career or hobby with the class.
We know that children learn best when their parents are involved in their child’s education and knowledgeable about their child’s progress. Our parents communicate with their children’s teachers daily about their health, behavior, and happiness. Parent-teacher conferences are offered twice a year and can be scheduled at any time. The Director provides consultations with teachers and parents in cases of special needs and challenging behavior.
