Teachers & Staff


Paddington has a select group of highly qualified, skilled and degreed directors, administrators and teachers from all over the world, who have educational degrees and many years experience in early childhood education. They are certified in CPR, First Aid, Heimlich Maneuver and SIDS Prevention. They are also required to maintain a minimum of 24-30 hours per year in continuing education through courses and various workshops provided by the school.

Each director and teacher comes to us with a deep love for children and a commitment to their early education. They realize they have an important opportunity to nurture your little ones’ natural curiosity and give them a love for learning while also making a positive and long-lasting impact on how they view school!
