Teachers & Staff
The teachers and staff at The East Carol Stream KinderCare are passionate about educating and nurturing children. Our teachers have a range of longevity from one year all the way up to 26 years. All of our teachers have their Child Development Associate's credential, Bachelor’s Degree, or Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, and/or are currently attending school to achieve their degrees or continue their education and training. The East Carol Stream KinderCare team strives for excellence through continuing education from biannual company professional development trainings to seeking additional college courses or seminars in the education field. At the end of the day, the true key to our teachers' success is their passion for teaching and their love of learning.
Health & Safety
The health and safety of each child is our #1 priority at the center. Your mind will be put at ease as we discuss our health and safety procedures during the orientation process. Some of the key procedures we provide are: Key Pad entry where only parents or guardians have access to the center, fenced outdoor play area for the children, center identification system, every staff member First Aid & CPR certified, a health and safety coordinator on site, and an Illinois Health Nurse that visits and observes monthly. Our Health nurse is licensed and helps train our staff in continuous changes and procedures happening within the world of health and safety. Every staff member is finger printed along with a state and national background check clearance, before having individual contact with children. Carol Stream KinderCare is also overseen by many state and local agencies such as Carol Stream Fire, Police and Health Department, Illinois State Health Department, and DCFS of Illinois.
