All teachers at NOBTS Preschool Education Center (PEC) attend regular trainings and are all a part of Louisiana Pathways Early Learning Career Development System. Louisiana Pathways provides support for childcare professionals in early education. This organization provides teachers with tools to gain more education through scholarships that help teachers move up the Louisiana Pathways Career Ladder. All lead teachers at NOBTS Preschool have or are pursuing a Child Development Associate credential or above. This is a nationwide transferable credential based on competency standards and shows proficiency in the areas of child development socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Many of our teachers are also students at NOBTS and other local colleges. Many of them are pursing degrees in an early childhood education related field. This allows NOBTS Preschool to be a place of development for our students and our teachers.
