Typical childcare and teacher college programs do not prepare their students to teach the Ardent Way. It really is that unique. Therefore, new Ardent Preschool and Daycare hires must complete a comprehensive 5 day in-class training. This on-campus program starts immediately upon hire and is given by experienced classroom coordinators and continues with lead teacher mentoring. All Ardent staff receive continuing education along with special training such as first aid, CPR and ServSafe Food Handlers certifications.
