About Our Teachers

We take pride in the dedication and commitment of our teaching staff. Several of our staff members have been with Playschool for over 20 years.  Each classroom is staffed with a lead teacher and a co-teacher or teaching assistant, and one or two parent helpers. The presence of accredited staff, knowledgeable assistants and dedicated parent helpers in each classroom allows Playschool to offer the excellent child/adult ratio (4:1 or 5:1) that makes our unparalleled child-driven curriculum and activities possible.

In 2021, we will using our Staff Spotlights to learn more about individual staff, their inspirations, and their incredible resilience in adapting to Outdoor Learning in a pandemic.
