They are committed to a career in early childhood education as shown in their tenure.
We are proud to say that 12 of our teachers have been with KinderCare for over five years.
Of those 12 teachers seven are at 10 years or more and two of them at 20 years or more.
This commitment provides consistency for the children and ensures parents that the teachers they have trusted will be with them as their children grow.
