All of our teachers are highly qualified. The majority enjoy years of experience teaching and caring for young children. Our lead teachers are VPK certified and have been trained in early childhood education. Our teachers continuously use different strategies in order to improve language development. They expose children to as many vocabulary words as possible to build children’s language skills. Strong language skills will allow children to effectively communicate any of their needs, wants or ideas. One of our main goals is that children have a strong foundation in language. This, in turn, will help to later reading success in school.

Donnamarie Tilligkeit is our 2-3 year old and Aftercare Teacher
"I started volunteering at a local preschool. The owner liked how I interacted with children and then she hired me initially to teach 2 year-olds and then later the 3-4 year old year old group. I worked there for 4 1/2 years. We had some kids with special needs and I really enjoyed working with them. I had a chance to develop strategies to help them recognize letters and colors and to help them improve their vocabulary. These are smart and talented kids. In the future I would like to study and develop myself professionally in order to teach VPK"
