Program Details

During their time in the Enthusiastic Elephants classroom, your child will experience a morning circle time, small group activities centered around art, colors/shapes, texture table time, and an outdoor recess. Before leaving our Elephants class, we would like the children to have a solid foundation of colors and shapes. Each child in our Elephants classroom is taking one nap a day, enjoying our nutritional menu, and is learning to use utensils. Each child will be given an opportunity to be introduced to (or continue to work on) potty training as well.

Meet our Enthusiastic Elephants Teacher:

Ms. Catie: Lead Teacher

 

Hello! My name is Catie and I am the Lead Teacher in the Enthusiastic Elephants Classroom! I graduated from Kuyper College with a Bachelor’s degree in Bible and Theology and Communication, with an emphasis on Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. After graduating, I decided to pursue education, so I obtained my teaching certificate through Grand Valley State University. Watching children learn and grow is a huge passion of mine.

I am excited to get to know each child in our classroom!
