Our Westfield Day Care Center Staff

Our classrooms are led by dedicated, certified or credentialed teachers, some with advanced degrees. A credentialed teaching assistant (or assistant teacher) works in each classroom. Part-time aides also help to keep the student-teacher ratio low.

All full-time staff are formally trained in our curriculum. Support staff are provided with an overview training of our curriculum and its implementation so that they may effectively support the teachers and the learning activities in the classroom.

All staff attain and maintain First Aid and CPR training, with supplemental pediatric training and AED training. There is very little turnover in our staff, most of whom have been at the Center for many years. Our average length of service is 8 years! All staff undergo fingerprinting and background checks.
