University United Methodist Child Development Center Staff

Compassionate, Nurturing and Dedicated

A program is only as exceptional as it’s staff. All of our teachers have backgrounds in early childhood education and continue to take classes to further develop their knowledge about young children. In addition, all staff members are fully certified in both Pediatric First Aid and CPR. Because our center offers paid time off, paid holidays, a retirement plan, company paid health insurance, and continuing education classes, we have a dedicated group of professionals, committed to high quality early childhood education.
