Our Staff

New Beginnings makes it a top priority to hire and retain staff members who not only enjoy children, but who also have experience and education in working with them. New staff members are required to provide information for a criminal background check and a check with the Central Registry of Child Protection.

We strive to provide a positive work environment that encourages people to remain with our program. We are aware that staff turnover is a major concern in child care, and we will do whatever possible to minimize change for your child. As part of our effort to retain quality staff, the center provides time for staff training and development on a regular basis. Training and time together allows us to build a sense of community among our staff and work toward enhancing their skills with children.

Research shows that ongoing training for teachers is one of the most critical factors in providing a quality early childhood program. Whenever possible, New Beginnings provides access to scholarships, financial incentives, flexible schedules and other rewards for employees that wish to further their education and enhance their skills.
