The quality of any child development center is a direct reflection of its staff. Hamilton Heights Child Development Center recognizes its employees as the center's most valuable component. Working with children can be a tremendously rewarding career and it takes a very special person to do it well. The staff at Hamilton Heights exceeds all recommended requirements for the early childhood education field. The teachers at Hamilton Heights meet the needs of both the center and of the families. For this reason, we are committed to providing a working environment that exemplifies cooperation and support.
Our teachers exceed the requirements set by the State of Nebraska for qualifications and annual training. Full-time lead and assistants are required to take at least 24 hours of training each year, which is 12 hours more than state requirements. Part-time teachers are obligated to complete at least 12 hours of training annually, which is 6 hours more than state requirements. All staff members are required to obtain certification in CPR and First Aid. The cost of training is paid for by the center.
Our teachers go through a rigorous screening and inteview process before they are hired. Each applicant must have a background check through the child abuse registry. We do not hire individuals convicted of child abuse and/or neglect. We only accept teachers with a commitment to parents and children. In order to optimize your child's growth and development, we hire teachers who are interested in providing quality care and stimulating environments. Only the best qualified applicants are selected to become Hamilton Heights teachers.
Hamilton Heights teachers complete a six-week orientation with their direct supervisor giving them the foundation and knowledge of our high quality standards, expectations, and curriculum.
