About the Staff

The staff at St. Paul’s Weekday Nursery School have an over 10 years’ average experience as educators. All of our educators are MA Department of Early Education and Care certified, maintain CPR and First Aid certification through the school, and use workshops and websites to expand our Early Childhood Education knowledge, skills and curriculum.
