Staff-Student employees and college aides
The Linfield Pre-Kindergarten is staffed by dedicated faculty who value children and their development. College students serve as staff aides within the classrooms. Student experience varies from beginning interest in working with young children to those who have spent many hours in the classrooms as part of their college experience.
All of these aides and teachers help us achieve low teacher-child ratio.
