We pride ourselves on having great, experienced teachers.
Our teaching staff average 10+ years’ experience, and 11. Caring Center teachers have won the prestigious Terri Lynne Lokoff National Child Care Teacher Award since we opened.
All TCC employees submit to a rigorous pre-employment screening, including FBI and PA criminal clearances, child abuse and sex offender clearances, a health assessment, background and reference checks (all clearances must be renewed at least every 2 years).
All TCC employees complete regular, ongoing first aid, CPR and fire safety training, as well as a minimum number of professional development credits each year. All employees are required to complete mandated reporter and civil rights trainings prior to employment, and to renew these trainings regularly. Classroom teachers have a degree in early childhood education (or a closely-related field, with an equivalent number of ECE credits).
