The Seedling School is very proud of its teachers. We employ teachers and assistants who are passionate about working with children at the preschool level; are energetic, nurturing and creative; and have backgrounds in early childhood education.
The State of California requires that preschool teachers have a minimum of 12 college units in early childhood education or child development and a minimum of six months experience working in a licensed center. All of our teachers meet or exceed this state requirement. Our teachers all have their bachelor’s degrees or advanced degrees, as well as a minimum of three years' experience in a preschool setting. Additionally, all staff members are fingerprinted and pass a criminal background check prior to hiring.
All of our teachers and assistants meet or exceed the educational requirements set forth by the California Department of Social Services. We pride ourselves on our highly-qualified, educated staff and our 1:6 or 1:8 ratios. We require each teacher to participate in an on-going program of in-service education so that we may keep current on new developments pertaining to the health and betterment of our children.
