Meet Our Teachers!
Our teachers are certified in first aid and rescue breathing and are certified annually by a practicing physician to be free from any disability which would prevent them from caring for children. All staff and volunteers have been passed a criminal records check.
Additionally, our teachers are committed Christians who promote integrity, respect and social skills in a nurturing environment.
