Teachers and Staff

Our Manhattan Youth teaching staff come from all walks of life. Many are former school teachers or are teaching artists with years of experience. Our teachers bring passion, excitement and fun to all classes at the Center.

Our Center Counselors, who you'll find in blue shirts throughout our building, are here to help you and keep the Center safe and clean. Many have a background in early childhood education,  and all receive continual development through training sessions and internal development programs. Their primary focus is the safety of all children and families throughout our Center.
