All our classrooms have lead teachers with advanced degrees in early-childhood education, CDA, as well as years of hands-on experience. TCD is proud of our very low staff turnover – most of our staff  have been with TCD for more than five years. We employ several part time assistant teachers to provide additional coverage in the classrooms. Our teacher-student ratio exceeds the state licensing standards.
All TCD teachers are certified in CPR, Infant & Child First Aid, Developmental Screening, American Disability Act, Breast Feeding, and Basic Health and Safety Training. The teachers also perform twenty-four hours of in-service training every year.
Teachers conduct ongoing observations and assessments of the children. The information that is gained from these assessments and observations is included in their lesson planning process. We also support our students with special needs by welcoming and supporting itinerant specialists in speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and special education.
