Meet Our Staff

Deer Valley Academy programs are staffed by individuals who have been trained in early childhood education/child development and who demonstrate the necessary personal qualities for working with young children.

Our staff have been selected for their educational backgrounds, as well as their experiences and expertise for working with young children. All teachers undergo a thorough reference check and background screening. During the school year, each teacher will receive frequent observations, coaching and evaluations. All staff receive CPR and first aid certification, a food handler’s permit and on-going training in the area of child development and developmentally appropriate practices.
