Ratio & Capacity

Kindergarten staff from professionals who hold a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education or a closely related field.  Our teachers are not hired on a basis of Lead Teacher / Assistant Teacher; rather they are hired to work on an equal level and to team teach through a collaborative effort and sharing of ideas. Toddler teachers are selected for their combined experience and education, as well as their abundant capacity for nurturing. Parents will find that the great majority of our part-time / substitute staff are also upper - level college students, pursuing a degree in the field of education.

​Hugs-n-Hearts ELC makes the reduction of staff turnover a priority by attempting to compensate our staff with additional incentives, such as comprehensive benefits and opportunities for promotion.  
Our goal is to make Hugs-n-Hearts Early Learning Center a career choice for professional teachers.
