Welcome to the Preschool Blue Room

About the Blue Room
Hello, I am Ms. Jennifer and I’d like to welcome you to the Blue Room. Miss Chelsea will be assisting in our classroom, and we hope you are as excited as we are to begin this school year!
A lot of love and attention went into designing our Montessori classroom in order to provide a supportive and safe environment suited for creativity and learning. The materials build on each other in a sequence that is both unique and universal for each child’s individual needs and desires as they progress. Children love meaningful work and it gives them a feeling of connection with themselves, each other, and our community.
It is our goal to foster empathetic, respectful, and independent thinkers through fun and engaging hands-on-work. In our classroom, it is encouraged to ask Why? How? What for? We want investigative minds! We will also be practicing kindness and courtesy, and encouraging life-long problem solving skills.
Always feel free to reach out with any questions through the Procare app or Send an Email below.
We look forward to being a partner in your child’s growth and learning this year.
