Our teachers are the heart of our centre. Trained in early childhood education, our teachers are dedicated to the care and development of your child. They help to create a caring and nurturing environment for your child. They are the key to having an open dialogue if you have considerations, questions or concerns. They play an important role in the development of your child and they take that responsibility seriously.
In addition to training on the Hands On Learning Centre curriculum, our teachers receive their certificate on the New Brunswick curriculum. All undergo extensive background checks and hold active First Aid/CPR certifications.
At Hands On Learning, we believe in ongoing professional development, which includes classroom observation and review by the management team.
