What makes a good teacher?
Look for warm, enthusiastic teachers who are well trained and dedicated. The NIEER recommends that all preschool teachers have a bachelor's degree in early-childhood education. However, most states don't require teacher training for preschool accreditation, and only half of preschool teachers have a college degree. So you may have to consider experience and reputation too. Other good signs: programs that encourage teachers to seek ongoing professional training and have low teacher turnover.
