About Our Faculty
Our warm and loving teachers are well-qualified to exceed standard staffing credentialing with Florida Child Care Professional Credential. The average tenure of our staff is ten years. Each faculty member is required to take training courses mandated by the Department of Children and Family Services as well as continuing education classes every year. Our staff is certified in First Aid and CPR.
The onsite Directors have many years’ experience both in and out of the classroom and a degree in Education. The Directors are trained in ACC policies and procedures and continually update the curriculum to meet rising standards and the needs of our students.
Mindfulness and Yoga
Additionally, all our teachers were trained by Mindful Little Masters in Mindfulness and Yoga for early childhood. We received dozens of easy to implement, 5-minute Mindful activities geared t o all the senses as well as the various learning styles. Our teachers implement these activities at different times of the day depending on the age group.
When teachers learn mindfulness, the not only reap personal benefits such as reduced stress and burnout, but their schools do as well. In random controlled trials, teachers who learned mindfulness reported greater efficacy in doing their jobs and had more emotionally supportive and organized classrooms. So, in effect, more mindful teachers lead to even happier classrooms and an even happier school.
