Meet Our Staff

HCC staff members are caring, loving, and respectful of children as individuals. Staff is selected on the basis of intelligence, resourcefulness, and ability to stimulate creativity and foster development. An understanding of the needs of working parents and the ability to work together for the benefit of the child are also prerequisites for employment. Although personality characteristics, experience, and training are as important as formal degrees, HCC looks for the following professional training:


  • BA degree in early childhood education or a related field or Child Development Associate (CDA) credential
  • Minimum of one year of experience working with young children

Assistant Teachers

  • A college degree or CDA credential preferred
  • Individuals working toward a CDA or degree are considered

All staff members must go through a Virginia Criminal History Records check and a Child Protective Services check, submit at least three references, and be vetted by the Center Director. The staff receives ongoing training for child development and education, including CPR and First Aid.
