My experience working with children started over 20 years ago when I worked as a preschool assistant. I went on to obtain my teaching credential, and have over eleven years elementary school teaching experience, primarily in first grade. After having four children of my own, I decided to stay close to home and opened up our preschool in 2006.
In addition to classroom teaching, I have served as a mentor teacher, training teachers who are new to the profession. I have taken several early childhood development classes, and am both CPR and First Aid certified.
Preschool is a very important start to your child's future. Working closely with several kindergarten teachers, I have developed a program that will balance the social development of children with the very basic academic needs now essential for entering kindergarten. With a maximum of 12 children per class, I offer a 6:1 child to teacher ratio.
I look forward to welcoming you to our very special preschool.
