All lead  teachers  at Spirit at Play hold a degree from an established University or are currently pursuing a child-related degree.  In addition, our teachers are members of the Montana Practitioner Registry and have thousands of hours of experience working with preschool-aged children.  All staff members are certified in first aid, and in infant, child, and adult CPR.  Each year, all full-time lead and assistant teachers take 23-50 hours of continuing education.  Assistant teachers receive at least 8 hours of continuing education.  Staff meetings are held weekly for full-time staff, and quarterly meetings are held for all teaching staff members.
