There will be more information added about our staff soon. We know how important it is for you to know who is caring for your children.  For now you can at least put a face to a name.

STAFF REQUIREMENTS

All program staff members are required to undergo a criminal background check including fingerprints and  obtain a test for Tuberculosis prior to working with children. Caregivers will be required to obtain a minimum of 16 hours of professional development annually, including certifications in First Aid, CPR, and Blood Borne Pathogens. Many of the staff members are NMU students aspiring to work with young people when they graduate. The goal is to provide high quality, consistent care and learning experiences for your child. 


ADULT TO CHILD RATIOS

The current staff to child ratio policy according to state licensing is 1:18. In most situations, you will find that we strive for a smaller ratio.
