2's, 3's and VPK/Pre-k Classes
All New Covenant Preschool staff members go through a Florida Level 2 Background screening process before hiring, including, but not limited to:
- Fingerprinting (consisting of Local Law, FDLE, and FBI Criminal History check)
- Reference check
- Employment history
- And mandatory re-screenings every 5 years
All staff members must complete 45 hours of DCF training in Early Childhood Development, Literacy, and Child Abuse Awareness, followed by 10 hours of continuing education annually.
