  • About Our Teachers

    The teachers are experienced and knowledgeable about early childhood education. They work collaboratively with one another to support each other in providing an atmosphere that is safe and engaging for all children. They are selected because they represent the values and beliefs of Learn and Play Preschool. Each teacher believes in on-going and open communication with parents. This is provided through:

    • A monthly calendar and newsletter
    • Assessment and conferences twice a year and phone calls on an as needed basis.
    • Daily highlights of the days events .
    • Moments of conversation at drop-off and pick-up times.
  • The teachers provide a consistent schedule with a balance between teacher-directed and child-centered activities. By providing a setting which fosters self-esteem, builds confidence and is based on respect, it is our goal that the children will be empowered to take risks in their learning. Through guided discovery and hands-on learning, children will be involved in a fully integrated curriculum. The broad range of age appropriate activities will easily engage toddlers and preschoolers. Activities will be based on monthly academic units of study (i.e. family). The children will be introduced to multidisciplinary experiences including: children’s literature, dramatic play, puppet shows, listening center, arts & crafts, science discovery & nature, cooking, sensory activities, social skills development, music & singing, fine & large motor activities, computer and early math skills. In addition, the curriculum will be enriched by field trips and special guests.
