Philosophy:

To have each child that I work with feel a connection with me, respected for their individuality, and have a safe learning environment in which to explore.

In my classroom children:

Are given opportunities to try different things and are allowed to maintain their own schedules to fir their needs.

Coming into my classroom parents will see/observe:

Happy interactions between staff and babies, children who are thriving in learning new skills, and growth.


My goals are:
To always come to work with a happy spirit and to enjoy everyday's experience with the children and staff that I work with.
