The teachers at St. Paul’s are Christians and are experienced in working with children. In addition they are kind, caring, nurturing and loving. They guide the children in developing spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially and cognitively. St. Paul’s staff celebrates and teaches Christian truths at all times.

Teachers lead the children in saying blessings, singing Christian songs and learning Bible stories, as well as leading them in secular songs and stories.

The teachers are required to attend a minimum of eight of continuing education in early childhood each year. All teachers are required each year to furnish proof of a negative TB test and a signed statement from their doctor stating that they “do not have any type of disability that would prohibit them from taking care of children.”

A criminal background check is done on each teacher through the Virginia State Police. In addition, a Child Abuse/Neglect check is done on teachers hired after July 1, 1998 through the Department of Social Services.

Family and school represent the primary environments in which young children grow and develop. Here at St. Paul’s, we realize that you are the most important person in your child’s life. We also know that you are your child’s first and most important teacher. We feel that the foundation for a good parent-teacher relationship is frequent and respectful open communication and a clear understanding of what is best for each individual child.
