Bakerstown Presbyterian Children’s Center is blessed with a staff of strong, Christian women who are nurturing and caring. Our teachers feel called to this ministry and mission, sharing the love of Christ, along with nurturing the growth of each child. Through the staff the children feel love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control, the fruit of the Spirit.
Our staff are professional educators who attend at least six hours of Professional Development annually, and are CPR/First Aid Certified. Each staff member holds PA State Police, FBI and Child Abuse Clearances.
