Our Amazing Staff
The Little School is an integral part of the Ocracoke community and our teachers care about each child as if they were part of their own family.  
The Little School on Ocracoke Island is staffed by highly trained and skilled teachers passionate about helping your child reach his or her full potential.

Our classroom lead teachers are state certified and meet or exceed all state child care requirements. All staff must complete a minimum number of training hours annually including ITS-SIDS training for any caregiver that works with infants 12 months of age or younger. Our teachers have in-depth knowledge about child care and child-development milestones and continually enhance their skills and knowledge on topics such as handling challenging behaviors, building confidence, and developing social skills through training, workshops and courses. 

​Teachers use the Creative Curriculum, the Division of Child Development Handbook, the ITERS-R and ECERS-R, along with other resources when planning for children and the environment. Infant plans are individualized to meet the needs of each child’s development. In the toddler and preschool rooms, teachers plan the environment and the weekly lessons based on themes, as well as the needs and interests of the children.
