The Curriculum Team (Miss Ana R., Miss Victoria, and Miss Melissa) supervise and support the implementation of curriculum, provide guidance to teachers, and support the academic success of all students.
We are proud of our dedicated and well-qualified staff. All of our teachers are experienced educators, holding qualifications that exceed the requirements set by the State of California for preschool teachers. They have all undergone thorough background checks, and certified by the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice as having no criminal record. In addition, all of our teachers are certified in C.P.R. and Pediatric First Aid. We require that all of our teachers continue to expand their education, through workshops, classes, and in-service training on a regular basis. Most of our teachers have been with us for five years or longer.
