Faculty & Staff

The Village Green Day School staff is comprised of experienced teachers who have been selected for their warmth, love, and understanding of young children. They are dedicated to working in the best interests of each child in the School.

All preschool and kindergarten lead teachers either have a college degree, graduate credits or a CDA (Child Development Associate) in their special areas of interest. (Requirements to obtain a CDA include documented assessments of 120 clock hours of specified childcare education, 480 hours of experience working with children within the past five years, a written assessment and an oral interview. Each teacher has a co-teacher experienced in working with young children.

 

The school year begins with a week of faculty orientation and training led by the Administration and further enriched by early childhood educators. Throughout the year, the entire staff attends professional meetings and on-site workshops to update their skills.
