St. Saviour’s prides itself on the quality of our exceptional teaching faculty.
All of our teachers hold degrees in education. Moreover, as life-long learners, they enthusiastically embrace on-going professional development covering the vast amount of new research available in the early childhood field.
Professional and committed, our teachers arrive one hour before the children each day to review curriculum plans and observations of their students to create a rich daily agenda that engages children's interests and fosters inquiry, discovery, and mastery.
Our Teachers value ongoing professional development
As a learning community, our teachers––and, in turn, our students––benefit greatly from a robust roster of professional development events each year.
Our current faculty book study Big Questions for Young Minds, Extending Children’s Thinking will include a Saturday workshop with the authors Janis Strasser and Lisa Mufson Bresson.
