Our Teachers

 We have awesome teachers who love kids and work hard to make sure they’re learning intensionally in a play-inspired environment. We all share a curriculum that includes English and Spanish literacy, phonemic awareness, music, science, math, Second Step, Brain Dance, and chapel based on our weekly themes.
All of our teachers are trained in CPR/first aid. All of our teachers are involved in monthly professional development and have been trained in early educational math and phonemic awareness, Brain Dance, Second Step, and many other early childhood topics. We are always working toward academic excellence for preschoolers!
