Day Nursery teachers give the program a special sense of connection and continuity. They combine a respect for school tradition with a commitment to incorporating early childhood development research and advances in the field of education into their teaching practice. The Day Nursery supports teachers through in-school and off-site professional development workshops, visits to other schools, and funded opportunities for higher education. Most teachers are bilingual, and their average tenure is over fifteen years.
Regular family classroom participation adds to the warm and collegial feeling of this unique community. Parents serve as class representatives, participate in activities including field trips, career days, lessons, and generously contribute their time, resources, and talent to annual events and appeals.
