Our Classrooms


We currently enroll 80 children in our seven rooms.  Child-staff ratios vary within each of the seven classrooms, but are well below state licensing limits.  Each classroom is designed to serve children of a particular age range.  Our teachers have various educational backgrounds such as a 4 year degree in a child related field, master credits in Education, a 2 year Early Childhood Certificate, a CDA (Child Development Associate National Credentialing Program), and/or various years of experience working with children.  All of our teachers receive continuous early childhood training and meet or exceed training requirements set by Licensing.  As a non-profit center, our staff salaries are funded by tuition fees.  We strive to retain quality staff by providing fair wages and benefits.  We also employ two full-time floating teachers that fill in for teachers’ illnesses and vacations and/or provide extra help to the classrooms during the day.

WCCC employs some college students as part time afternoon floats to provide extra help to our classrooms and support classrooms as the 7:30 a.m. teachers leave for the day.  They are trained in the philosophy of the center and count in licensing ratios.
