Our staff qualifications far exceed the minimum qualifications required by (ODJFS)-Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, our licensing agency. Each classroom has a Lead Teacher and an assistant teacher as needed, assigned to the class and who are the main staff in the classroom throughout the day. The Lead Teacher is ultimately responsible for the classroom and is the first point of contact for parents regarding anything to do with your child or the classroom. All of our staff undergo state and criminal background checks, pre-employment physicals, and references are thoroughly checked. At all times there is at least one person per classroom who is CPR/First Aid Certified – often there are two persons. For more information about any staff member please read our staff information bulletin board. In addition, our staff is dedicated to continuing education experiences. All of our staff is involved with the YWCA Child Care Connections which offer professional training opportunities to child care profesionals who go above and beyond state requirements. We here at A Promising Tomorrow recognize that there are always new things to learn and additional ways to improve the program. This obvious appreciation for the value of education serves to reinforce for children and adults the positive ongoing goals, attitudes, and skills needed for lifelong learning and working with others in a diverse society.
