Register One of my parents shared these special words with me today: "One thing that I really have not mentioned is what makes your school special. And that is you,the profound love and nurturing that you provide each and every student gives them a warm, learning atmosphere. It is truly as if every child is your own!" This makes my heart smile. If you are searching for a preschool that will teach your child based on his or her individual needs, please contact me. My experiences as a mother coupled with teaching for Millstone of Ivy, The Peabody School and Albemarle County have given me the foundation to accommodate a broad range of social and academic ability. I'd be honored to teach your child! My mission is to foster a comprehensive, multi-faceted, child-centered learning environment that encourages imagination and exploration while preparing each child for the academic, social and emotional challenges of life. The principles of child-centered education: The basic principle of child-centered education is to enable the optimal development of a child's personality and competencies in line with his/her individual needs and requirements. More... -Child-centered Education Koeck-Stiftung My goal is to provide a fun, nurturing environment that engages children and makes life-learning enjoyable. It is important to me that I maintain a small, intimate classroom setting that allows children to feel safe and provides each child the individual attention they deserve. I also feel it vital that children learn at their own pace and are encouraged to be themselves to allow their inner strengths to shine and their self-confidence to grow. About me: First and foremost, I am the proud, loving mother of two amazing sons ages three and four and a half. I am also an experienced educator. I previously taught at Millstone of Ivy while attaining my Master’s degree in Education. I also taught at The Peabody School and for Albemarle County Public Schools. Though I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the classroom, I chose to remain at home after the birth of my first son. I wouldn't trade those years for anything in the world, and now I am ready to teach not only my children, but also your children. It is my hope that together, we can make a positive difference. Thank you for entrusting me with your child!
