Meet Our Educators
Each of our educators has studied child growth and development. All are committed to achieving a CDA (Child Development Associate) and most have earned a CDA credential. The majority of our educators have completed an Associate’s degree in early childhood education and several have continued their studies to obtain a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree.

As a part of their commitment to continuously improving our programs, each educator participates in the Massachusetts Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS). All educators are required to maintain First Aid and CPR certification.
