Our staff members are chosen from a variety of educational backgrounds, ranging from Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE) to teachers and specialists in Outdoor Education, depending on their particular role.  Professional development and continued learning is very important to us. Little Lions has embarked on our own training program where our staff members are offered in-house Waldorf training to further enhance their skills.

Little Lions makes every effort to hire RECE staff for all our programs.  Staff with other qualifications are sometimes hired, however, in-service training is a requirement to ensure that non-qualified staff meet our requirements. Staff members receive in-service training by their site supervisor, the CEO, Human Resources, Resource Teachers, local presenters and, on occasion, by visiting Waldorf presenters.
