Our highly qualified staff are committed to providing an optimum learning environment for each child attending the Early Childhood Education Center at Juniata College. We consider ourselves to be life-long learners and participate in several professional development opportunities throughout each year. Each staff member also receives first aid, CPR training, and annual fire-safety training. As mandated reporters, we are required by PA law to report suspected child abuse.
