Our teachers

We have an exceptional teaching staff whose dedication, expertise, warmth and kindness are at the heart of our school.

All BACNS teachers have experience working with young children, with degrees and/or certification in Early Childhood Education. Many of our teachers also have advanced degrees in educational fields, and perhaps as important as their teaching qualifications, our teachers also bring their passions for art, music, ecology, gardening, scientific exploration, and literature to life in our classrooms

We provide ongoing professional development through regular in-service training and workshops, as well as attendance at local, state, and national conferences. School director Jenny Levine-Smith works closely with the teachers to plan curriculum and implement the daily program.
