Faculty and Staff
Our faculty have all taken courses in Early Childhood Education, CPR, 1st aid, Blood Borne Pathogens training, and ongoing monthly training. All of our staff must go through an extensive background check by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation fingerprint check. Once they have passed the background check, we assign them to a classroom which is especially suited for their talents and expertise.
