Meet Our Staff

The staff at Children's Journey consists of 26 care givers, both teachers and aides. Our teachers hold either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree, an Associate of Arts (AA) degree, or the required Early Childhood Education classes. All of us are experienced in the care of children and strive to create and maintain a very "family like" atmosphere. We truly feel that Children's Journey is a 'home away from home' for children, where they can grow, learn, and play in a warm and secure environment.
