Our Team

"Because of the support and the appreciation we get from the owners, it has a family feel. That transfers to the team, and when the team is happy, the children and families are happy. Everyone is so loved... at Oak Village Academy, LOVE comes first! "

Valerie Vess, Assistant Director


As with curriculum standards, at Oak Village Academy we view the teaching standards set by the state of North Carolina as simply a starting point. Our expectations go above and beyond from there. At Oak Village Academy, meeting the NC Childcare Credential only qualifies you to be an assistant to start.

While all of our lead teachers have two-year or four-year college degree along with at least two years experience, we look beyond just teaching credentials when selecting our staff. We seek to hire those unique master teachers, and therefore education and experience are just the beginning of our considerations. 

Our teachers and staff build upon this theme of exceeding expectations… always asking, “What else can we do for each child and their family?” We meet every applicant face-to-face and screen them to make sure they are right for our team. 

In fact, at Oak Village Academy, our administration, staff and ownership are like one big family where love and care come first! There is always an administrator on site, and our teachers thrive in the supportive working environment. This all lends itself to the positive energy you notice as soon as you step onto our campus. And, we expect every member of our staff to naturally do simple things like hugging and bending down on each child's level so they feel cared for and loved.
