The Center for the Development of Children

Jean's Penguins - Children Aged 48-60 Months

We have two Penguin rooms; one led by Anna and one by Jean. When there is a need in the community, we are able to split the two rooms into older and younger pre k rooms.

Both rooms prepare the children for their next step in their eduction career, but each has a focus for the developmental age of the children who make up the classroom. 

Jean has been with the center since 1994. She enjoys baking, taking walks, reading and knitting. Her personal teaching philosophy is, "I treat every child they way I would want my own child to be treated."

Our Penguin room has a three day minimum enrollment policy.
