General Information

We can guarantee that your child will have great time learning through play, exploration and experimentation in the Wonder Room. Mistakes and messes make these experiences more rich and educational. Please send your child in loose, comfortable play clothes. This promotes their independence and sets them up for success in any given situation that may arise.

What do you love most about working with children?

I love being able to watch children grow and develop through my work and theirs as well. It's such an amazing feeling when a child accomplishes something. Not only do they feel good about themselves but I feel so proud that I get to expereince it with them. There's no better feeling than watching your thoughts and ideas come alive through your students in your classroom. I couldn't imagine doing anything else!

What are you complimented on most in your work?

Throughout my experience of working with children I have been complimented most on how involved and silly I get with children. Every child is different, and sometimes getting really silly and out of your comfort zone is the best way! Like Robert John Meehan said, "Teaching children is an accomplishment, getting children excited about learning is an achievement."

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work I love going on adventure date nights with my boyfriend Alex. We love trying new restaurants, hiking, traveling, cooking, and of course relaxing. I enjoy spening time with my family and friends and spending time with my puppy neice, Emi!

Classroom Language

Please check the NBCC parent handbook for helpful examples of the language we use. One important example is that we do not apologize. Many children between ages 3-5 do not understand the concept of a genuine apology. Instead we “check on our friends,” so the child takes responsibility for their actions and the other child has the opportunity to express themselves.

Non-Nappers

Non-Nappers is a program for children 4 and over who have outgrown their nap. Resting is a requirement for all children. If your child is a non-napper, he/she will rest quietly on their cot from 12:45-2 PM and then go to another room to do quiet activities from 2-3 PM. Children who fall asleep will not be awakened to go to non-nappers and will be allowed to sleep until 3 PM.
