Our Educators

We value trusting relationships which is why we have consistent staffing across all our rooms. All of our educators get to know the children & families in our community in a personal & meaningful way. This means your child feels a strong sense of safety, familiarity & belonging with their educators when they are learning at Hastings CCK.
