Award Winning Quality Childcare
The heart of any center is absolutely it's staff team. Our team is incredible & we are very grateful to them for their commitment to our children EVERY SINGLE DAY. Many of our staff are celebrating major milestones & we just want to celebrate them!
Our staff are diverse, most of them speak a second language. This is incredibly helpful when we have new families who have not yet mastered English, or when grandparents pick up who are visiting from "back home". We promote and celebrate diversity..
Miss. Kathy joined our team in 2014. Over the years she has worked with the infants and toddlers. She is incredibly nurturing & caring towards each child. Kathy completed her Early Childhood Assistant Diploma in the 90's. Her own daughters are all grown up so she really loves having the opportunity to connect with little ones!

Miss. Erica is a Registered Early Childhood Educator who works in our Senior Preschool Class. Her programming is incredible. She plans and implements activities to prepare the children for school entry. To say the children love her would be a huge understatement. *Speaks a second language
Miss. Amy is a Registered Early Childhood Educator who works in our Toddler Class. She started in our Infant room & moved to toddlers when a few of her little babies were graduating to the next class. Amy is incredibly knowledgeable and patient. She also speaks Mandarin which is incredibly helpful in communicating with families where English is not their first language.
