At West Nashville Preschool, we strive to hire passionate, dedicated, and caring teachers who are committed to making a difference in children’s lives.
Our early childhood educators are chosen for their education, training, experience, dedication, character, and ability to connect and communicate effectively with children and adults.
We respect the field of early childhood education and view our educators as professionals tasked with the fundamental job of providing a strong foundation, on which all future learning depends.
Although we’re all on our own step into learning and growing, our educators are brought into our mission and believe in the importance of early childhood education.
At West Nashville Preschool, our team members are the heartbeat of the program. We celebrate these fabulous individuals who devote their lives to loving, educating, and nurturing children.
Our goal is to create a warm family atmosphere where mutual respect is a priority. We recognize and celebrate our common interests, as well as our diversity. You will often find our team members going the extra mile to support the needs of their peers, the students, and the families.
