Meet Our Teachers And Staff
One of Alphabet Academy's best traits is it's longevity of staff and teachers. This also speaks highly of our company and organization as usually the childcare industry is a high turnover field of employment. It also lets parents know that our staff and teachers have years of experience in the child care field. Our teachers are requried to have yearly education as well as criminal clearances and FBI background checks. Most teachers and staff have years of experience working with children as well as implementing the academic curriculum that our school uses daily. Meet some of our staff below.
