Learning is fun when it’s done through hands on experiences, make believe play, conversations, and focusing on the children’s individual interests. Their incredible personalities and sense of humor shine through!

Kerry Wilson

Pre-K K Head Teacher Kerry Wilson has loved working with children for as long as she can remember and has worked with various age groups. She is very perceptive about the ways in which children learn – in particular, she has found that her pre-schoolers learn a lot from group discussions, free play, and the positive examples set by the other students. She believes that play is a child’s work and strives to set her students up to be life long learners. Kerry loves to read and tries everyday to help her students enjoy it as much as she does!
