Staff members at Common Ground are tenured, child care professionals. More than half of our staff have worked at Common Ground for over ten years. Indeed, a number of our staff members have been part of the Common Ground family for 20 to 30 years and taught current parents years before! Each staff member has a wealth of teaching knowledge, years of experience, and compassion for children of all ages. We invite you tour our facility to meet our outstanding staff in person. Furthermore, Common Ground teachers receive early childhood education training of at least 26 hours annually.
