River Road Church Preschool has a highly professional staff. Each lead teacher has a degree in early childhood education, or a degree in a related field with the addition of early childhood coursework and certification. Each assistant teacher has the early childhood coursework and certification, or is actively working to attain these credentials.
Continuing education is important for all staff. Every year, the staff is required to have 20 hours of in-service education on topics pertaining to the field of early childhood. In order to stay abreast of new trends, thoughts and practices in early childhood education and related issues, staff members attend early childhood national conferences, as well as local opportunities for training. The staff exceeds the qualifications set by the Department of Social Services of Virginia for teaching young children and, at all times, maintains the high standards set by the National Accreditation Commission, the accrediting division of the National Association for Child Care Professionals.
