Days Gone By utilizes a vigorous application and interview process which allows us to employ a unique and dedicated staff. Our employees are challenged to offer the very best care, education, and interactions to all children and families each day. All teachers are certified in Early Childhood Education and are highly qualified individuals. Teachers are required to be certified in CPR and First Aid, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Reduction, and Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) Reduction trainings. They are also required to continue their education by attending evening classes, online classes, seminars, workshops, conferences, and need-specific continuing education events. Monthly in-service meetings are mandatory for all employees to attend.

Our teaching staff works hard to offer learning experiences that meet the individual needs of the children in their group through observation and intentional teaching opportunities. All staff will have information about Developmentally Appropriate Practices and we will review this information at least annually. Worksheets, flashcards, and large group lesson times will not be found in our classrooms.
