About Our Staff

Our staff includes teachers, a chef, administrators and substitute teachers. Each teacher has a minimum of 12 ECE units and/or Montessori training, or an AA or BA. Each of our staff members have been CPR and First Aid Trained. Our school chef prepares homemade meals in the kitchen daily using processed foods minimally. We puree fruits and vegetables and freeze them for our infants as well. We serve breakfast, lunch and two snacks daily. We believe in nutrition for a happy, healthy child. As the children get older, we also believe in serving meals and snack family style. This gives the child the opportunity to serve themselves their snacks and their meals. It teaches them independence, manners and responsibility.
