Meet Our Staff

The staff and teachers here at Northwoods Child Development Center are fully equipped, trained and qualified. They are all professional and experienced individuals in the field of child care and early childhood education. Some have experience working with Wisconsin children for decades. 

Each day, our teachers follow daily plans that are educational, creative, fun and age appropriate.  To ensure we maintain high professional standards, our wonderful staff have many opportunities to continue their education both with in-house training, workshops, and educational opportunities outside the Center.  This ongoing training helps to ensure our staff have the skills and resources they need to provide the best preschool, school age, child care and development services to your child.  

 

A Registry membership is required by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families in for to staff in a group center or school-age program.  We are also working to increase our rating with the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families Youngstar program.
