Meet our Staff

At UHCLC our staff of dedicated teachers work every day to make sure each child gets the positive learning experiences he/she needs to grow up happy and confident. Each classroom has a full-time Teacher, an Associate/Assistant Teacher, and part-time UH Student Assistants.

Our teachers are professionally trained through formal college coursework and/or specialized professional development classes and have experience in the early childhood classroom. They make a basic commitment to align themselves with the profession’s responsibilities as set forth in the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct. They also maintain First Aid and CPR (infant, child & adult) certifications. Additionally, all staff participate in an annual professional development plan to ensure that their early childhood expertise is maintained.

Student staff attends an initial orientation before they begin working with the children which introduces them to fundamental aspects of the program’s operation and regulatory requirements. Follow-up training expands on the initial orientation and promotes an understanding of NAEYC Accreditation Program Standards. As the student gains classroom experience they increase their knowledge of the early childhood profession and Developmentally Appropriate Practices. In addition, UHCLC offers a Student Development Program that encourages the building of professional skills and work habits and allows for advancement.
