At Kid's Cottage it is our main priority to have a loving, nurturing staff that is compassionate about a career teaching young children. All of our teachers have extensive background checks in addition to a working interview. Although a majority of our staff come to us with experience and education in the preschool setting, we offer multiple training opportunities and additional classes through out the year. We also have mandatory staff meetings and training sessions multiple times annually to ensure we have a well educated team. Please learn about our AMAZING STAFF below!
By The Way- We are all CPR/ First Aid Certified!
Mrs. April is our preschool teacher, as well as our back up director. To say she is a wonderful teacher is an understatement. She has been an amazing asset to our center and our families. Please read more about her experience and goals on our Directors page.
