Our Staff

Dinosaur Den Child Development Center follows the Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s regulations for hiring our qualified teaching staff. Every staff member is submitted to the KBI for a background check. All teachers are required to be certified in first aid and infant/child CPR and trained in Child Development, Recognizing Signs and Symptoms of Illness, Recognizing Child Abuse and Neglect, and Abusive Head Trauma. All teachers, whether full time, part time, lead or assistant, must attend 10 hours of child-related classes each year. Lead teachers must have a combination of experience in licensed care and secondary education hours in a child-related field. Infant teachers are also trained in SIDS/Safe Sleep Practices. Van drivers must be lead qualified and at least 24 years of age with an excellent driving record. All employees are mandated reports for the state of Kansas and are required by law to report if there is any reason to suspect that a child has been harmed as a result of physical, mental, emotional, sexual abuse or neglect.

Dinosaur Den is locally owned and operated, providing you with the reassurance that your child's care decisions are made by people you see face to face every day, not by a corporate office located in another city.
