At The Jewish Preschool on Sardis, we provide experienced, dedicated staff that is committed to excellence and genuinely cares for each child.

Our staff is made up of teachers who are chosen for their professionalism, as well as their caring and compassionate personalities. In addition, our teachers have degrees in Early Childhood education or related fields.  The teacher-to-child ratio at JPS is lower than state requirements and equal to the highest level of preschool accreditation nationwide.
