Mission Avenue Preschool staff go through a three-phase interview; Application, Interview and a Working Interview in order to be considered for a position at the center. References are called and a decision is made with the director and a panel of teachers at the center. Once the teacher is hired, he/she is required to complete a comprehensive orientation program. Each new teacher is trained by a head teacher at each site to ensure that they are giving the center the quality that we expect from our teachers. Upon hire, teachers are on a probationary period of 3-months. At the 3 month review it is to be determined if the employee is granted a permanent employment status.
