Our Pre-School program is taught by Deana Hamilton and Jill Lawson. Both ladies have a lot of experience and training in Early Childhood Education and do a fantastic job in the classroom. They are also certified in CPR, AED and First Aid, along with other DHS approved training each year. Their goal is to see kids learn to their highest potiential before they leave the classroom. Parent involvement is also important. Having parents participate in classroom parties or special events means a lot. Also, being able to talk with you if your child is having behavior issues or other issues where they may need your help as a parent. They teach a Pre-Kindergarten Readiness Curriculum that will prepare your child for Kindergarten. We work very close with our Knox. Co. & Seymour Schools as to what they require their students to know when they enter Kindergarten and that is incooperated in our curriculum.
