Jenny Wilson is the Lead Teacher. She has a BA in Elementary Education and a Masters in Elementary Education. Angela McVicars is the teaching assistant and Kathy Moskoff is the Parent Outreach Coordinator. They both have associates degrees.
The kids have a sign-in and morning orientation. They then go to small groups and centers. Some of the options include; dramatic play, blocks, math, library, writing, science, water/sand table, and art. Both classes are given snacks during this time. They then proceed to clean-up and then head outside for outdoors play.
They teach Pre-K Core Knowledge, Teaching Strategies Creative Curriculum, and Leader in Me.
The preschool goes on several field trips. In the past, they have done nature trips to experience the seasons. They have also done trips to Bath Lumber, Ridley’s, the post office, and the fire station. The teachers go to great lengths to tailor trips to match the interests of the kids.
Parents are required to attend one entire class section once per month. Of course, more options for volunteering are available. Parents also must complete required data collection.
