The highest quality we feel necessary for any of our staff is a love for children. Without a sincere love for children the most educated person would not meet the greatest need of any child. Our staff has been specifically chosen with this love for children as a requirement. Their backgrounds vary, and their education and training are ongoing. The State of Virginia requires all staff to receive continuing education on a yearly basis, and Clairmont School is active in choosing particular workshops for our staff that specifically relate to their everyday duties. All staff must receive both criminal background and child abuse/neglect clearances, both upon initial employment and every 3 years thereafter. Clairmont School and Child Care Center strives to maintain quality, caring staff.
