Maria Early Learning Center recognizes that our staff is the heart and soul of the program. We seek candidates who have experience engaging with young children, model Gospel values, and are committed to providing quality developmentally appropriate education and loving care.
The Center hires lead teachers who have a minimum of an Associate Degree in early childhood education or a Bachelor’s degree in a related field. Assistant teachers possess certification as Child Development Associates (CDA). All teachers have clear background checks and most are certified in first aid, infant/child CPR, the management of communicable diseases and child abuse.
Every two years the Center invests 25 hours per teacher of continuing education in early childhood.
