At JOY School we take great care in selecting a well qualified staff possessing a true love for children. Our staff has undergone extensive reference and background checks. They strive for excellence and continually undergo training and education (most hold degreed in Early Childhood Education or have their Childhood Development Association Certification) for the protection and development of children.

All teachers are required to have a minimum of thirty hours of training in Child Development classes per year and continue to keep all CPR and First Aid certificates validated.
