Where we will have a wonderful year of growing and learning.

In Kindergarten, children need a caring, nurturing environment that provides enriching, meaningful experience.  For me, it’s important to have a bond with the children, and parents as well.  After all, we are a team in your child’s education.

Kindergarten is a time for immense language acquisition and development.  My classroom is a “Whole Language” classroom where I purposefully and thoughtfully immerse words, reading and writing into all subjects.

Young children naturally have a love of music, movement, art expression and nature.  This is a wonderful opportunity to read, write, and share our different experiences, becoming authors along the way. 

Because all children learn at their own rate, I provide a rich, differentiated scaffolded curriculum that builds excited, eager learners.
