We have highly qualified, skilled staff at the Beth Shalom Early Childhood Center. All teachers are required to complete 30 hours of basic Early Childhood Training and 10 hours of annual continuing education. All staff members are certified in CPR and First Aid. We seek loving and nurturing teachers who truly enjoy working with children, are supportive of families and respectful to children.
