Teachers & Staff

Board of Directors

CPSC’s non-profit corporation is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors, elected annually by our families. Our strong parent board of eleven and our Executive Director set the pace for change, stability, consistency, and financial stability while paying keen attention to a very high-quality program for young children.


Our professional teaching staff is comprised of experienced educators who understand child development and carry the ability to connect theory to practice. Getting to know each child as a unique individual each with their own temperament, ways of navigating the day, and sensing what they need from teachers to feel secure and competent is a part of our pride in our work. Recognition of each child’s efforts and achievements, as well as plenty of affection and encouragement, will be part of your child’s experience at CPSC.

All teachers have at least 15-semester units in Child Development and years of experience. Many of CPSC’s Teachers also have university degrees: many with A.A., several with B.A., and some with M.A. degrees in Child Development, Human Development, Psychology or related fields of study. The entire CPSC teaching community has LiveScan fingerprint clearance from the Department of Justice, CPR, and First Aid Certification, and Mandated Reporter Training.

CPSC’s teaching teams embody the diversity of the Silicon Valley area, rich in culture and traditions from their own families, with a willingness to share this with children and families in our care.

Administrative Staff

While the teachers working directly with children are by far the most important element of quality of a child development program, the administrative staff who support them can significantly enhance their working conditions and provide the support they need to do their best.
