About Us

Our Staff

At Carmel Mountain Preschool one of our highest priorities is ensuring that our teachers and staff are exceptional. We interview each teacher as if they will be teaching our own children and, in some cases, they will be. We go beyond the basic state requirements and look for individuals who embody and support our mission. We look for staff that are loving, caring, dynamic and have a commitment to our children at Carmel Mountain Preschool. Because our school has a long-standing excellent reputation within the childcare industry we are able to attract an equally high-quality professional staff that are dedicated to making a difference in each child’s world.

Our teachers recognize the importance of ongoing communication with parents. They have classroom iPads and email with parents when in-person meetings aren’t possible. We have teachers who have been with us for over 30 years, which is a testament to the consistent, high-quality, caring atmosphere at Carmel Mountain Preschool. We support our teachers with in-service training throughout the year and a Resource Specialist, Teacher Training Specialist, and Curriculum Specialist to enhance and expand their classroom knowledge. All of our teachers are CPR and First Aid Certified and have a minimum of 12 units in Child Development, but more than half of our staff have Masters or Bachelor’s Degrees.
