The majority of our lead teachers and administrators have been at our schools for 20 years or longer. Many of our teachers are multilingual and bring to the classroom varied cultures and a wealth of expertise in many subject areas.
All of our staff and teachers, regardless of their educational background are required to maintain the standards of the Florida Department of Children and Families. Many teachers, because of their Early Childhood Education degree are granted the Child Development Associate (CDA).

Each of our schools have one or more administrators who hold a Florida Director's Credential.
