Early Education Center » EEC Home » Staff


Our 23 staff members focus on provide a safe, loving place for your child. Each staff member meets and exceeds the state education requirements for teachers. Our teachers must have completed a minimum of 24 units of Early Childhood Education, and our Assistant Teachers must have completed at least 12 units. Most of our teachers have completed an Associate or Bachelors degree in Child Development.  Because the field is rapidly changing with all the recent research, each staff member is strongly recommended to and rewarded for completing at least one Early Childhood class a year, or completing 20 continuing education hours.   

Each staff person completes CPR and First Aid training yearly.  All staff members are fingerprinted, and we carefully check the state and FBI data bases to make sure the record of everyone on our campuses is clear.

When hiring teachers, we spend a great deal of time interviewing and trying to select teachers that
embody our philosophy, that are gentle and caring with the children, and that are enthusiastic and truly enjoy small children.
