Our Staff

Our directors and teachers are certified through the Department of Early Education and Care and are required to complete both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. The teachers are experienced in guiding children through fun, hands-on learning experiences while supporting them through transitions as they grow. Our assistant teachers are students of Eastern Nazarene College and come to our center to gain instruction in developmentally appropriate practice. Their energy and enthusiasm make them a wonderful addition to our program.
