All staff members are trained in CPR and First Aid and meet or exceed all training guidelines set forth by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care. The vast majority of our teachers hold bachelor or graduate degrees, more than half in child development or early childhood education.
In addition to our regular full time staff, the program is augmented by the addition of specialists to provide enrichment in such areas as musical instruments, diversity awareness, farm or wild animals, sign language, creative movement, yoga, sports, woodworking, veterinary science, environmental awareness, community helpers, pet care, and the human body.
