Early Care Center Staff


Our United Methodist Association of Preschoolers requires that each teacher of two-year-olds or older be certified in one of the following ways:

  • Any college 2 or 4 year degree with at least 6 college credits in Early Childhood
  • 6 college credits in Early Childhood and three years of teaching experience
  • Vocational Certificate in Early Childhood Education.

Our staff are all certified in First Aid and CPR. They are required to receive 24 hours of in-service training every year so that their skills will constantly motivate and challenge your child.

Early Care Teachers make the difference!

The Early Care staff is recruited for its abilities to work well with children. Employment is nondiscriminatory as relates to religion, race, or national origin.

Active interchange of the church staff and the day care staff contributes strongly to the relationship between the congregation and Early Care Center.
