I love working at LCA because I truly feel like part of a family, I feel valued and appreciated, and I adore our LCA children and families! At LCA, the arts are considered core, not “extra.” The administration, faculty, staff, parents, and children understand the importance of the arts to a child’s learning and development, as well as their social emotional health, and I am so grateful to be able to share the joy of music with this community!

I love working at LCA. From growing relationships with friendly families to working with the amazing administration, LCA is a wonderful, caring community and school.

Tricia Bringman, Lead Infant Teacher, 3 Years

I started working at LCA a little over a year ago. I wanted to work here because of my love of children and also because of my mother. My mother attended St. Augustine Academy as a child for kindergarten through second grade, and then again in high school. She was an incredible, faith-filled, gracious woman who taught me and my 9 siblings what is really important in life: faith, family and kindness. But mostly she always believed in my special gift with children. I feel her guiding me everyday when I’m here. No job rewards like a small child telling you they love you or hearing their laughter, or seeing their wonder at the simplest things. That’s why I love working here.

Mary Kramer, Assistant Teacher, 1.5 Years

LCA is a wonderful place to work filled with people who thrive to make magic happen daily. The faculty, staff, and administration at LCA are a supportive, compassionate, and caring family who embrace you with open arms when you enter the school building. Working at LCA is a gift that I thank God I get to experience everyday!

Leah Nagy, 4th Grade

I never thought I’d make a career out of daycare life. But now I can’t imagine working anywhere else. I love the atmosphere and the people I work with.
