Preschool Staff

All staff members meet or exceed all qualifications as required by the State of California.


All teaching staff is CPR/First Aid certified, have an ECE Certificate with additional education and continue to attend various conferences or workshops related to the Early Childhood Field.


Perhaps what is more important is that they are enthusiastic and love their work which reflects in the positive environment they create for the children.


With the amount of staff at the preschool our preschool ratios are approximately 1:9 or less for our youngest group and 1:10 or less for our older groups.
