We find working with and supporting our preschool parents extremely rewarding. Like parents, teachers wear many hats; during a typical day we might be a:

  • Coach
  • Friend
  • Janitor
  • Mediator
  • Musician
  • Nurse
  • Role Model
  • Story Teller

Just like our students, we are excited to be here, because we are still learning too! Ask any of the staff, we love what we do!
