Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led

From the Director:

The success of my program is based on individualized instruction derived from daily observation and assessment. I believe children learn best through an integrated, hands-on curriculum which caters to all learning styles and skill levels.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

One of the advantages of having children in a small group preschool learning environment is a strong focus on individualized instruction. Children grow and mature at different rates, have different strengths, challenges and learning styles. I look at each child as a unique individual and differentiate my instruction accordingly.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

I'm an experienced early childhood educator with one course shy of my Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies. My education has a strong thematic emphasis on early childhood development and women's studies. I have twenty years of experience in the early childhood field and have worn many hats. I've worked as a preschool Director, assistant kindergarten teacher, classroom teacher of ages 6 weeks to 5 years, as well as a licensed home child care provider. I am married and we have a 12 year old son and in 2009 our daughter was born. That's when we decided Little Rompers Preschool would re-open it's doors. We are a licensed home preschool located in the city of Shoreline, down the hill a few blocks east of Shoreline Community College and Highland Terrace Elementary School. My program is geared towards children ages 3 months to Pre-K. I believe it is important for children to have diverse opportunities to expand their cognitive, social, fine and gross motor development through exploration. My program offers children many opportunities to imagine, explore and thrive within the context of a safe, nurturing environment. Through both child-initiated and teacher-directed activities the children discover and expand their interests while learning the skills necessary to be successful in school.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

I believe in creating a community within our school. Every day I write a personalized note to each family about their child's day. I send home bi-monthly newsletters describing our curriculum goals. We also have social events such as our annual family potluck luncheon and Mother's Day Tea/Father's Day Coffee.
