Meet Our Staff

Meet Our Staff

We pride ourselves on being a family-oriented environment, not only for our students, but for families and staff as well. Our highly qualified staff consists of former and retired school district elementary certified teachers, and individuals with early childhood education degrees and certifications.

Each staff member must complete a minimum of 16 hours of professional development each year by participating in courses offered through KCCTO and Childcare Aware of Kansas​. We continue to have high staff satisfaction which results in a very low staff turnover rate. We are highly regarded in our community as providers of quality care and education.
