Our dedicated staff consists of four lead teachers, six educational assistants, our director, Lori Erven, and our office administrator, Jane Clinger.
The longevity of the staff speaks for itself. Staff members have been at St. Luke for an average of 8 years – some for over 15 years! This longevity results in a stable and consistent environment for learning and facilitates an excellent team approach to child development.
Our teaching staff have either a degree in early childhood or a related field, a Child Development Associate Degree, or are in the process of earning a degree. The teaching teams plan together and share the responsibility of providing a high quality program. Staff members participate in ongoing professional development.
The school’s governing body, the Preschool Committee, is made up of volunteers from the church congregation, parent representatives, staff representatives, the director, and a member of the pastoral staff. The committee is responsible for the school’s governing by-laws and operating policies. Through the years, committee members have included parents and grandparents, as well as educators, accountants, engineers, and more!
