Our Staff

Our staff consists of talented, thoughtful, heart-centered people holding a variety of degrees ranging from associate’s degrees to master’s degrees. We are passionate, dedicated individuals who are active in a wide range of personal interests and professional development activities. All our staff members are dedicated to the lives of children and to being lifelong learners themselves. Little Owl School provides many opportunities for ongoing staff development, workshops, and professional development for our staff. All teachers are CPR/First Aid Certified, and many are members of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) in addition to the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance (NAREA). Our behind the scenes staff is comprised of a wealth of education and experience ranging from architecture, computer technology, film production, early childhood education and human resources. All these attributes bring something to enrich the Little Owl environment further.

Little Owl School staff members are fingerprinted and have received background check clearance by the Department of Social Services and the Department of Justice prior to employment.
