Our staff consists of experienced caregivers and students who are studying child development. All of who genuinely care about helping children grow and ensuring that they have wonderful experiences at Discovery Children’s Academy. All staff are hired and trained to be role models for the children. The staff’s attitude, energy and enthusiasm reflect this. All our caregivers have first aid / CPR training and have had a TB test. Our staff and volunteers have undergone intensive employment and background screenings.
Professional staff is required to meet the State of Texas requirements for continuing education hours. Discovery Children’s Academy is fortunate to have staff members that are excited about professional growth and current best practices in early childhood education. Staff is encouraged to explore different possibilities of continuous improvement and is required to attend at least 25 conference hours each year.
All staff members are instructed on the Center’s confidentiality policy. A staff orientation is held for all employees within their first week of employment. This orientation provides information on policies, procedures, First Aid, appropriate guidance techniques, job expectations, and daily schedules.
Pictures of current teaching and administrative staff are posted on a bulletin board near the administrative offices.
