Halsey Schools = Learning
Our low ratios provide consistent personal interaction and group socialization. There are no more than 3-4 children per teacher in the Infant Center, 6-8 in the Toddler Center and 10-12 in the Preschool.
All teachers hold their Early Childhood Development Credential and are certified in CPR and First Aid. Every classroom uses co-teaching instead of teachers and aides. We do not have less qualified aides or assistants. Everyone is a fully qualified teacher. Learn more about our teachers at the Happy Teachers Menu Link above.
Absolutely. Every teachers goes through a complete finger printing and background check through the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). All our teachers have squeaky clean records, years of experience and excellent educational and personal qualifications.
Tuition is paid monthly in advance on the 20th of each month with electronic ACH checks. You never have to worry about forgetting to pay or paying late. And we can focus our attention on the program and our children.
(We prefer ACH but will take credit cards if absolutely necessary. Credit card companies charge us a lot of money to process payments. Eliminating that cost gives us more money for your children and the teachers.)
