University KinderCare

The teachers and staff here at our University KinderCare are passionate about educating and nurturing young children.
We have recently welcomed some new teachers to the KinderCare Family and doing so has added a lot of diversity to the qualifications that our teachers have.
The majority of our teachers have their CDA, Bachelor’s Degree, or Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.
The University KinderCare team strives for excellence through continuing education from professional development trainings to seeking additional college courses or seminars in the education field.
At the end of the day, the true key to our teachers' success is their passion for teaching and their love of learning.
