Staff Credentials

The staff at Little Friends School is comprised of highly qualified teachers and faculty with years of professional knowledge, training and experience. The teachers are certified in their respective fields. Staff members participate in workshops and conferences including those sponsored by the New Jersey Association of Young Children to continually advance their professional development. All our staff are required to submit to a CARI background check and fingerprinting. All staff members routinely have physical examinations maintained on file at the school as well as tuberculin tests.

Communication

Teacher conferences are scheduled throughout the year and we are always available to discuss the progress of your child. A monthly newsletter is also distributed to inform parents of daily activities, upcoming events and important reminders. Please refer to the Little Friends for updates, program information and inclement weather closings. Communication folders go to and from school daily. Please make sure to check folders daily so that important information is not missed. Any new updates will be posted on the communication bulletin board in the main building.
