Teri Fatzinger is the lead teacher in the infant and young toddler classroom. As a mother of two, she fully understands the importance that peace of mind brings to parents of such young children. The first three years are a crucial time of life. Research indicates that the brains of infant and toddlers are twice as active as those of adults. This is why children turn to adults for emotional security and opportunities to learn more at this age than any other. Due to Teri's many years of experience working with children, she is able to design and implement activities that are most suited and beneficial for your child. Her experience, nurturing personality, and commitment to working closely with parents will ensure a positive, long lasting impact on your young infant or toddler.
Anna Mendela is the lead teacher for the Pre-Kindergarden classroom at Bright Minds Learning Center. She has volunteered at LifeChurch in the Kinderchurch Sunday School Classroom for over 14 years. Spending time with children every Sunday made her realize how much she loved teaching kids, which is why she decided to return to college. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from DeSales University. As a member of Kappa Delta Pi, an honorary teacher's society dedicated to fostering excellence in education and promoting fellowship among those dedicated to teaching, she is able to keep up with the latest trends and technologies that foster your child's learning. As a parent, she understands the importance of receiving quality care, building relationships, and the value of a good education.
Curriculum: The preschool classroom consists of 3, 4 and 5 year olds who learn from the Mothergoose Time Curriculum that fosters a joy for learning through sensory-based experiences - See more at: http://www.mothergoosetime.com.
Faith based learning is also incorporated throughout the day by saying grace at meal times, praise and worship time where kids sing and dance to the Inside Out Curriculum DVD series, and learning about God through various readings, discussions and celebrations.
