Our Teachers: Training in Early Childhood
Each of our teachers is educated in the early childhood profession. Our lead teachers have received training from a wide variety of accredited sites, conferences, full-time community and technical colleges, universities and on-site training.
In addition, all of our teachers are required to complete 40 hours of on-going training each year in areas crucial to early childhood development such as: sudden infant death syndrome, shaken baby syndrome, health and safety precautions, classroom management techniques, behavior guidance, lesson planning, child development and much more!
Because your child’s safety is paramount to us, each of our teachers and assistant teachers also has CPR and First Aid training annually.
At World Around Us, we use The Creative Curriculum approach in all of our classrooms. This approach is accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation NECPA. We offer specific classroom education for infant, toddler, preschool, and school-age children. The professional educators in our childcare in both our White Bear Lake and our North St. Paul centers emphasize early childhood development through learning about the world around us.
