Pre-K Staff

Each Pre-K teacher is a certified teacher with an endorsement in Pre-K. Assistants must have at least a high school education. Teachers and assistants are required to obtain 30 hours of professional development training each year. All personnel have a health exam, background check, and references for employment on file at the Cheatham County Board of Education office. Teachers and assistants are certified in CPR and First Aid. They have attended a Child Abuse Awareness workshop. The teacher/student ratio must be 1:10 at all times. Each site is inspected twice a year by a child care program evaluator to insure that the site meets all requirements stated in the State Board of Education Regulations for School-Administered Child Care. Four-year old Pre-K classes must follow the same requirements as day care providers.
