Educators

All of our educators are required to have, at minimum, a B.A., and 5 years of experience working with children. In addition, Teachers complete a rigorous 6 month onboarding experience, which includes training on everything from our curriculum, observation & assessment, proper guidance & discipline methods, to emergency preparedness and family engagement. 

We understand the importance of highly experienced, engaged, and intentional Teachers, and what a huge difference this makes to the life of a young learner. Therefore, we pay our Teachers 30% above the average Preschool Teacher salary in Seattle, we pay 100% of their medical, dental, vision premiums, offer 3 weeks of time off each year, and constant opportunities to participate in ongoing professional development. 

We hire & evaluate based on our
Guiding Teacher Values

3 . Joy
