Albany Preschool is extremely proud of our outstanding and dedicated teaching staff and administration, some of whom were once themselves parents of Albany Preschool students. Our staff meet all state requirements for their positions and every member has many years of experience working with children. As a cooperative preschool, our students’ learning environment is also enriched by the loving involvement of parent volunteers in the classroom. You can learn a bit about our staff below, but more importantly, please come and visit so that we can meet you in person!
