From The Director
Sandcastle Preschool is a non-profit preschool established in 1985. I am the original director, and have been a teacher for 35 years. I have two degrees; elementary education and special education. My graduate studies have focused on early childhood education. I am very fortunate to have an incredibly wonderful staff who have all been a part of our team for a number of years.
Our teachers have degrees in either elementary education or early childhood education. We are all trained in Infant/Child CPR and First Aid and participate in continued early childhood training throughout the year.
A common question that comes up from parents is, “What type of preschool is Sandcastle?”. Our main focus at Sandcastle is the social aspect of a child’s development. We feel it is important to establish good social skills; sharing, getting along with others, following a routine and directions, developing an attention span for an age appropriate activity for a period of time, using manners, and more. With that said, we do many activities daily that work at learning the basics – recognizing names, colors, shapes, numbers, the alphabet to name a few. As they progress to the older classes we add more structure to the routine as well as activities geared toward kindergarten readiness. We all feel strongly that preschool should be a SAFE, FUN and LOVING place to come to and we work hard to provide the very best for your child!!
