DHCDC Fundraising Breakfast





DHCDC employs only qualified, experienced teachers.

They are not babysittersthey are educators, trained to nurture children's development socially, emotionally, physically and academically.

All DHCDC teachers hold at least an associate's degree in early childhood development/education, and many have bachelor's degrees.

Some of our teacher assistants have early childhood degrees as well, and for those still working on one, we created a partnership with Thomas Nelson Community College to bring in professors for on-site classes in the evenings.

But the best thing about our teachers is that they simply love what they do
. . . and the children they nurture.

Ongoing Teacher Training

All teaching staff at DHCDC undergoes year-round training with our Education Director and other professionals, including a full week of classes and workshops at the end of every summer. The sessions range from sit-down discussions to hands-on (and in some cases, feet-on!) practice to help create an enriching, play-based preschool experience.
