MEET OUR DEVOTED TEAM

We have qualified and experienced staff members who have devoted many years to their passion for teaching and the children in their care. These precious ladies, be it our teachers, teaching assistants, cleaning or kitchen staff, dedicate their time and love to every child who joins our Farmyard family. They strive to form a bond with each child and this, in turn, will lay the foundation for the child to develop holistically.

At this young and vulnerable age, our learners need a home away from home, and the educational staff at Farmyard are aware of this. Your child will feel loved and safe (emotionally and physically) in their school environment.

We have 3 staff members (a teacher and 2 teaching assistants) in each class.
The staff (teachers, as well as assistants) of Little Farmyard attend additional training sessions and workshops regularly. We make sure that our methods of teaching stay current and those lessons are delivered in such a way that every generation will benefit.

8 staff members hold current HS FA CPR AED certificates
