Children thrive when their teachers are deeply interested and committed to them. Our teachers enjoy working with children and parents to create a warm and consistent environment. The teachers act as facilitators of learning, and respect the idea that each child participates in the process of learning in their own unique way. We have carefully selected our team, not only because of their knowledge and experience in the field of early childhood and school age education, but also because their personal educational philosophy and teaching style is compatible with our approach. Each staff member meets or exceeds the qualifications set by state laws and completes a full orientation program when they begin their career. Training and orientation are required per year and are documented in each employee’s file. Each staff member undergoes a background and criminal check that they need to pass per the State of IL requirements.
Maxine's Daycare recognizes that learning is a life-long process for children, as well as adults. Our teachers are offered continual opportunities throughout their employment to further their education and improve their teaching skills. We offer in-service training, company wide workshops, and seminars.
