A daily schedule is provided for each classroom so parents can choose the hours they would like their child at the center based on their needs.

What criteria do you require of the teachers?
State requirements for a childcare center are as follows:
Group Supervisor – Degree is Early Education or similar.
Assistant – High school degree and minimum of 1 year experience.
Aide – High school diploma
Guidelines indicate that 50% of staff can be of the aide level. At Bensalem Child Care Center and Preschool we take our time with staffing to ensure much higher standards. All teachers are qualified as either Group Supervisors or Assistant Group Supervisors with many years of experience. We encourage parents to get to know their children’s teachers and to check out our ‘Meet Our Teachers’ tab on our website.
What clearances are needed to work at the center?
All state and federal clearances are needed to work at the center along with mandated reporter training, physical and TB tests. The majority of our staff has been trained in CPR and First Aid of children.
What security features does your center provide?
Security is a top priority at the center. Each room is equipped with cameras. To enter our facility, you must ring the bell and be let in by a staff member. This allows us to know exactly who is in the building at all times. Every family must fill out proper forms for authorized pick up people. You must also sign your child in and out on the iPad with a separate code.
What if I need someone to pick up my child that isn't on the designated pick up list?
You will bring in a written letter stating who will be picking up your child. That person will need to bring an ID to present before releasing your child into their care. The name and address on the ID must match the name and address provided to the center.
Are you a nut free facility?
We are a peanut free facility. In the new member paperwork, please provide any allergies your child has so we can keep specific ones out of the classroom.
Is food provided?
