All of us at St. Paul’s Day School are dedicated to providing exciting and enriching classrooms where learning is fun and children are known and valued. Our faculty of nearly 30 teachers are professionals with tender hearts who strive to create positive learning experiences for children. Our head teachers all have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree with some form of  Certification in Early Childhood/Elementary Education in New Jersey. Some of our assistant teachers are also New Jersey Certified teachers while others have their CDA (Child Development Associate), Associate or Bachelor’s Degrees. All of our staff continues to educate themselves in early childhood education each year in professional workshops to keep up to date with the latest pedagogy.

All staff is regularly trained in CPR, First Aid and in the use of the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for both children and adults.
