Sue Jenkin


I am so lucky to spend my days with young children! I love the mindfulness of children, never worrying about yesterday or tomorrow, they live in the moment, a wonderful life lesson for all of us.  Children are so genuine, when your breath stinks like coffee, they tell you, they also tell you that they love you and you know they mean it.

When I am not at the preschool, I love being outside in the woods or at the beach, hiking with my greyhounds, taking photos of everything, including my dogs. Yoga is a daily obsession – I love the mindfulness of uniting mind and body.


Silvia DiMella


I love the looks of pure joy and excitement when children explore new tasks and activities.  I treasure my relationships with parents/families and their children, which in turn gives children models of social interactions, a vital part of growing and success in the future of the children I teach.

When I am not at preschool, I love reading just about anything, knitting and crocheting, along with gardening and going for walks, with Delylah, my dog.  Crossword puzzles are a favorite too.


Michelle Tommell


I enjoy being with children of all ages, but especially preschoolers.  There is nothing more rewarding than witnessing their wonder and excitement every day!

When I am not at the preschool, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, and reading. I especially love all things Harry Potter!


Kristen Nedinsky


Every day, and every child, is different.  I love watching them learn, discover and achieve.  I enjoy experiencing things with children for their first time, they grow so fast, it is fun to watch them grow.

When I am not at the preschool, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  I love going for walks and going to the beach.  I love to travel and explore new places.


Melissa McCray


I enjoy teaching because I feel a part of something magical, making a difference in each child’s life.  I love exposing children to the wonders of the world around them.

When I am not at preschool, I love reading a good book, going for nature walks, gardening and art, along with spending time with my family, especially at the lake!


Sarah Levesque


I love seeing all the happy faces of the children when they come in each morning.  I enjoy helping children to learn new skills and achieve great things and believe in themselves!

When I am not at preschool, I love being outside, gardening, going for walks, or sitting by the campfire. I love spending time with my family.


Melanie Grice


I love working with preschoolers. Conversations with 3 and 4-year olds can be so much fun and, no matter what difficulties arise, the days are sprinkled with laughter and hugs. Most of all, I love helping to build a strong foundation for children to stand on throughout their lives.

When I am not at preschool, I love yoga, reading, spending time with my 4 children and long walks with my yellow lab, Luther.

I love interacting with all the children.  I enjoy helping them to learn new skills.  I look forward to forming relationships with the parents and the families.  I feel like I am contributing to society when I work with young children, it is the most rewarding work I have ever done.

When I am not at the preschool, I love reading and spending time with my family.  I enjoy cooking and being active.  On weekends, I like to shop with coupons and save money and go to church.

I love working with children! It’s a great way to spend the day. Every day, there’s something new and exciting going on at preschool, and I’m very lucky to be a part of that.

When I am not at the preschool, I love reading and writing, and spending time with my family. I particularly like riding bikes and playing with our dogs. The best part of the day is learning new things!
