There are three Group Teachers and seven Assistant Teachers, with all teachers meeting or exceeding New York City licensing requirements for early childhood teachers. Music, movement, science, and drama/storytelling specialists supplement the program, and consultants provide subject skills, support, and advice in the classrooms.
