Our Team


It takes a special type of educator to work with children that make up the early childhood age range.

Teachers must address learning competencies that support the attainment of basic cognitive, behavioral, social and physical developmental milestones. Patience, creativity, a love for the field and a professional qualification in child development are all important qualities of an early childhood educator and we are blessed to have those teachers all here at Little Village Christian Nursery School.

Our teachers are first aid trained and participate in educational enrichment workshops and conferences throughout the year.
