Wonderful Virginia Academy teachers are trained and enthusiastic individuals who have been selected not only for their educational backgrounds and experiences but also for their understanding of and dedication to young children. Many of our lead teachers and all of our management possess a Child Development Associate (CDA), or hold an Associates or a Bachelor’s degree in Education or in an Early Childhood related field.
In addition, teachers receive on-going education and professional workshops in Early Childhood Education through an extensive corporate training program. Our teachers are supported in their efforts to continue their education through our in-house CDA program and our college tuition reimbursement plan. They play a critical role in our school to achieve the Best Childcare in Woodbridge Virginia.
