Preschool - Enjoying The Journey of Childhood

Philosophy - We believe young children learn best by doing. The learning environment is created to provide children with a safe place to grow, explore and learn. Activites are planned that are developmentally appropriate. Teachers are seen as facilitators. They interact with and guide children in their learning and strive to help each child reach their fullest potential. Differences in children are accepted and celebrated. Each day is full of learning and laughter!!

A little about myself - I live in Story City with my husband, two teenage boys, my dog Ava and my cat Pepper. I graduated from ISU with a degree in Early Childhood and taught kindergarten for 20 years before coming to Roland-Story. This is the third year for the preschool program and I LOVE working with this age of children!
