Having worked for sixteen years in the public schools with young children has given me the desire to open a center where I can implement curriculum and instructional methods which I believe are appropriate and best for children. While working with four and five year-olds has been extremely rewarding, I have always desired to work with younger children. I believe in using every possible opportunity to encourage development and growth, from before birth through the pre-kindergarten years.
A major reason for opening this learning center has been the desire to have more educational “continuity” with my students. As a teacher it was frustrating to be interrupted by “vacation” just when the children were reaching peaks of tremendous learning and “community building”. I look forward to establishing our little community here at the center, where we can give our children the nurturing and activities that will assist them with their growth and development.
