Our Top Notch Staff
Everything Grows takes extreme care in the hiring of staff to care for your precious children. Required by NYS Child and Family Services, all potential staff are fingerprinted and scanned through the Child Abuse and Maltreatment System, as well as other NYS required clearances. They must have a current physical and negative TB test on file, be CPR and First Aid trained, educationally qualified and possess years of experience working with children. All staff must complete at least 2 working interviews within a classroom before their actual sit down meeting with us.
Because we know the importance of who is caring for your child, Everything Grows has their own set of required criteria that must be met by any potential staff member. They must be kind, patient, understanding, loyal, silly, responsible, friendly, trustworthy, reliable, helpful, dedicated, creative, warm, happy, a team player, punctual, respectful, loving and passionate about what they do!
Please take a look at our staff roster below. We are extremely proud of our very low turnover and how we retain our staff over the years. Consistency for your children is very vital in their growth and development. Everything Grows is a happy place where children and teachers alike can learn and grow. We consider our staff to be family and treat them as such. We work together in making Everything Grows the most sought after childcare in the area. Thank you and we hope you choose to ‘Come Grow With Us”.
