At the heart of each child’s learning experience is a staff of caring professionals to nurture and guide each child. Grace Pointe CDC's qualified, caring teachers strive to build a strong educational relationship with children and their parents. All our staff share a common commitment to nurturing and educating young children.
At Grace Pointe CDC, we know that our families depend on qualified and loving caregivers and teachers. Our directors place a priority on finding, hiring, and retaining qualified staff. All employees must meet MSDE regulation requirements in order to be eligible for employment.
Grace Pointe CDC's staff is constantly improving their skills through on-going mentoring and continued education training. Staff members must complete training in the identified core of knowledge areas yearly.
Our staff places much value on the parent/teacher relationship. We desire to be an extension of home and provide the best care for each child, based on his/her individualized needs.
