Philosophy:

I believe that a preschool setting should provide experiences that are engaging and encourage free exploration. Play is an important activity that has enormous impact on a on a child's development.

In my classroom:

Children in the Red Room will be encouraged to explore, create, solve problems and have positive interaction with their peers and adults.

Coming into my classroom parents will see:

Children engaged in a variety of hands-on activities that are age appropriate and based on the children's interests and needs.

My goals are:

For the children to gain skills in various areas; social, self-help, math and language. I want them to have a positve experience and feel excited to come to school every day!
