When it comes to teachers, our standards are as high as yours. At Funshine Preschool, childcare, and education services are provided by trained, dedicated teachers who love what they do!

To ensure staff quality, we conduct a pre-hiring assessment that identifies high-quality candidates. 

We check references and conduct thorough background checks based on state and/or local licensing requirements. This includes fingerprinting and appropriate criminal background checks, as well as verification of educational credentials. Candidates who will transport children undergo a thorough driving history check and annual checks.

We do this to protect the most valuable part of our center: your child. That’s also why all of our teachers go through annual in-service training to stay current and apply the latest in early childhood education to ensure and create a nurturing educational environment. Learning experiences are based on the unique needs and interests of children in their class. And a low student-to-teacher ratio means more individual attention.
