Our native French and English-speaking teachers come from more than twelve different countries.
All our teachers bring a comprehensive early childhood educational experience to the team. They are selected for their classroom experience, their empathy ability, their nurturing skills, and their sensitiveness to the children’s needs as well.
Petits Poussins Brooklyn provides its teachers with the full professional training program and guidance recommended by the NYC-DOH, along with an in-site professional training program tailored to our specific bilingual setting educational purpose.
Every single staff member is trained and CPR/First Aid Certified.
