The strength of the Center comes from our dedicated teaching team. Their collective enthusiasm, knowledge, and work ethic are reflected in every aspect of our program.
Our staff is composed of experienced early childhood educators who are committed to the unique needs, care, and education of young children and their families.
- All Lead Teachers hold a B.A. degree in Child Development and a Children’s Center Permit granted by the State of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
- Assistant Teachers are students at Cal State L.A. who are majoring in Child Development or a related major. Student assistants have varying backgrounds; some are near completion of their degree program in child development and some have just begun their academic careers. The one factor all student assistants have in common is their desire to work with children and grow in their understanding of child development.
- Staff training and development is ongoing, as well as responsive to current research and innovative educational philosophies in early childhood education.
- In addition to our professional staff, student interns, who are completing their education in Child Development, are placed in each classroom. Student Interns add to the quality of our program as well as further lowering our teacher/child ratios.
