A Living Wage School

Our school  was recently recognized as one of only 100 Durham employers that have been certified as providing a living wage for their employees. The Durham Living Wage Project recognizes businesses that pay their employees at least 70 percent more than the federal and state minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. You can see the full list of Durham Living Wage Project certified employers here. Note that Family Preschool is the only secular, half-day preschool on the list.

Our dedication to paying our teachers a living wage, coupled with our diligence in hiring the most dedicated teachers for our school, have led to outstanding  teacher longevity and an exceptional family experience.
