About Your Teachers

Meet Your Teachers:

We want to assure you that we will do our best to make this transition into school as easy as possible for you and for your child.  Below is the philosophy that we follow as we teach your child:

  • We believe that all children have an ability to learn.
  • We believe a child’s self-esteem should be nurtured tenderly.
  • We believe modeling is the most powerful way to affect learning and behavior.
  • We want your child to enjoy the learning process, and develop a motivation for learning.  

We hope that by the end of the year, you will be able to say that your child’s first year of school was joyful, exciting, and filled with learning and fun!
