Alta Head Start Teachers Are Highly Qualified

The Alta Head Start program goes above and beyond the National Head Start requirements for Teacher qualifications by employing a large majority of Lead Teachers with Bachelor’s Degrees in Early Childhood Education. Every Teacher Assistant has, at a minimum, a Child Development Associate (CDA). In addition, the majority of our Lead Teachers hold and maintain a Resident Educator’s license for the state of Ohio. Having these highly qualified and highly skilled Teachers and Teacher Assistants has helped ensure Alta Head Start maintains CLASS scores above the national average for all categories.
