Meet the Staff

Adults are the foundation of our program, they are the facilitators of children’s learning.  Each of our classrooms are staffed with fully qualified teachers with a B.S. or B.A. degree and hold a Master Teacher Permit or higher from the California Commission on Teaching Credentialing.  Our teacher child ratio is 1:8 for children 3 and over and 1:6 for children younger than 3.  The Children’s Center provides at least 15 full day onsite professional development days for the entire staff.  We encourage intentionality in teaching practices, so we allow times for teachers, to both individually and as team, reflect on children’s learning and plan strategies for their development.

All of our part-time aides and assistants  are CSU Dominguez Hills students who are working towards a degree in Child Development, Liberal Arts, or Human Services.

The Children’s Center is a place for learning for children, as well as adults.  The lead teachers in the program take on the role as mentors to CSU Dominguez Hills and local community college students to complete observation and practicum hours to meet class requirements.  We value this experience as an opportunity to support student success as they reach their goal of academic achievement.
