Want a few hours to yourself while your child is having fun and learning new things in a fun, safe, loving environment? I have just the thing for you!
Playhouse Prestwich! Children ages 3-6 (potty trained, please) are invited to come for a 2 1/2 hour experience. Each session will have a theme based on the season or upcoming holiday and will also have a character trait theme. Here's what they'll be doing:
-Music time: We will explore music, movement and rhythm, learn new songs including ASL and Spanish, and experience different musical instruments.
-Story time: We will enjoy fun stories relating to our theme and character traits from a variety of authors, as well as work on building vocabulary and encouraging literacy.
-Art project or science project: We will do at least one art or science project each session that includes our theme, season, weather, animals, insects, etc.
-Snack time: a healthy snack will be provided and incorporated into our learning.
With all of these activities comes the opportunity for socialization and making new friends.
By way of information, I have worked with young children my whole life. I am the oldest of four children, so I helped with my younger sisters all the time. I babysat extensively throughout my teen years and taught at Bengal Paw Preschool at Brighton High.
I have an Associate of Arts degree from Dixie College, where my studies included Child Development, Children's Literature and American Sign Language. While living in St. George, I was hired as an assistant at the Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind preschool/ kindergarten. When the main teacher went on maternity leave, I took over her position. After college, I learned Spanish as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I have four children of my own and I help in their schools. Education is very important to me. I love to learn and I want to help children love to learn too! I love books and reading and did a monthly author spotlight at the elementary school to share my love of books!
Music is also an important part of my life. I participated in school choirs starting in elementary school and continued through high school as a member of the Brighton High A Capella choir. I also performed with Sunshine Generation for many years.
I am also happy to provide you with references upon request.
I look forward to your kids participating in Playhouse Prestwich! It will be $10 per session, $8 for additional children from the same family. If you refer a friend, you get $1 off for each child you refer. Class size is limited, so sign up early. I will open additional sessions as needed.
Our first session, Fall Ball, will be Wednesday, September 28th from 9:30 am- 12:00 noon. To register, call me at 801-965-1521 or email beanandtim(at )yahoo (dot)com. (Pet free, smoke free home, FYI)
