Hi! My name is Miss Ashley. I am excited to be your child’s Lead Pre-Kindergarten teacher at Children Central. I graduated Holy Family University with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in Pre-K to 4th grade in December, 2013. I had a great experience and learned so much doing student teaching in the Bensalem School District in the second grade.
I started at Children Central in 2012 as a Floater Teacher working in multiple rooms wherever I was needed, which gave me the experience to teach all of the age groups at our school. In 2014, I became a full-time Infant Room teacher. I then moved to the Preschool class to teach the 3-4 year olds to prepare them for Pre-K. I have also held positions as the Kindergarten After-Care teacher and as an Adventure Camp Co-Director three years previously.
I have always had a passion to work with children from when I was very young. Going to school while working at Children Central gave me the ability to understand the students’ needs and adapt to their age level. I am delighted to be a part of your child’s development and be able to watch them experience new things and learn about the environment around them. I believe I can be an important part of their development by guiding their curiosity. Daily lessons will give them insight into the different things around them, as well as prepare them for Kindergarten.
I believe every child will grow and learn best by models and play. Watching children interact with their peers is the most interesting for me, as well as strengthening their emotional, social, cognitive and physical skills. I also feel that each child learns differently and at their own pace, and it is my job to provide each child with the tools they need to learn and grow. I will strive to be a positive role model for your child and help them to develop all of the necessary skills to be well prepared for their next challenge in Kindergarten.
I have three wonderful sons. Currently Crew attends Children Central in the Twaddler Room. My oldest, Aiden, was in Adventure Camp and graduated from Pre-K at Children Central in 2016. Liam also attended Children Central from the Infant room to Preschool. They have all learned so much here and make me so proud! I enjoy shopping and spending time with family and friends. I always look for ways to make sure I am the best I can be in all aspects. I am ready for this year and hope to maintain open relationships with you as parents, or family members, and will always have an open ear for any questions that may arise! This will definitely be a fun year of learning together, as we prepare your child for kindergarten.
