Our Staff

The Children’s Center is staffed with highly qualified educators trained in Early Childhood Education. Many of our teachers hold Associate’s, Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees. Our low teacher/child ratios allow for the staff to plan and provide a high quality program in each of our classrooms.

The CCC is committed to maintaining staff who are consistently on the cutting edge of the Early Childhood Education field. Our teachers are provided a myriad opportunities for professional growth. All staff are encouraged to continue preparation in Early Childhood Education, to participate in professional development opportunities and to fulfill First Aid/CPR training, annually.
