  OUR STAFF

Our staff consists of two teachers for each class.  Each teacher has been selected not only for her professional qualifications and experience, but also for her love and understanding of children.  Staff have attended programs and workshops presented by the Rochester Association for the Education of Young Children, and Handwriting Without Tears.  Each teacher will serve as a consultant to parents and will be available for parent-teacher conferences.
