Our low teacher-to-child ratios allow dedicated teachers to focus on the individual learning styles and needs of each child. We beat the minimum state standards for classroom teacher-to-child ratios in every classroom. While state ratios go all the way up to placing only one teacher with 18 kids, our lower teacher-to-child ratios range from 1:4 to 1:9 in all classrooms. We are one of the only schools which employ 2 teachers simultaneously to work closely with students during the school day during awake hours which increases the quality of supervision, academic instruction, and social-emotional practice.
Highly Trained Teachers
Our teachers deliver developmentally appropriate, research-based instruction that fosters confidence, self-esteem, and a love for learning. Full-time teachers have a college degree, early childhood or childcare certification or CDA, or are enrolled in an educational program. Each of our staff members is pre-screened with a criminal background check, FBI fingerprints, and is pediatric first aid and CPR certified. All childcare staff receives 30 hours of early childhood training each year, including frequent training in Conscious Discipline and other early childhood subjects. Additionally, new teachers complete an additional 24 hours of pre-service training. We team up with the TEACH Scholarship Program, CLI Circle CDA Training Program, and Blinn College to support our teachers in increasing their education through a CDA program and/or an associate's degree in Early Childhood Education or a bachelor’s degree program. Our goal is to support our teachers and staff in increasing their education, raising the quality of care and instruction for your little one.
High Quality Curriculum
Our teachers use a research-based, developmentally appropriate academic curriculum for all classrooms including infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Our program is designed to teach the whole child through daily delivery of academic, social-emotional, and spiritual instruction. In addition, we understand the importance of learning through play and employ many NAEYC standards in our program in each classroom. Learn more about NAEYC standards here.
We serve nutritious snacks to our growing students including fresh fruits and healthy grains. We avoid high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oils.
