Staff

LMUCC Staff are the facilitators of each child's learning. They bring our philosophy to life on a daily basis. With this in mind, we recruit and hire those individuals who share our beliefs about how children learn and have a knowledge and understanding of quality Early Childhood programs. We select staff on the basis of their extensive experience and education in the field of Early Childhood Education. LMUCC staff are committed to life-long learning and are encouraged to be active leaders in the field through continuing education, working toward a national credential, and through memberships in professional organizations.
