  • Each teacher is carefully selected for his/her educational background, teaching experience and sensitivity to the individual needs of the young child.

  • Each teacher has at minimum, a degree/credential in child development or a related field and is responsible for the curriculum planning and development of the classroom program, following the school’s philosophy and based on the developmental needs of the children.

  • All DCH Preschool staff members are subject to a CORI and SORI through the state of Massachusetts prior to beginning employment.

  • We celebrate the longevity of our staff with some members of our staff having worked at the DCH Preschool for over 25 years!
