The creation of Wishing Well Preschool arose out of the need to provide a top quality learning experience to preschool age children in a unique and beautiful country farm/classroom setting. This unique environment incorporates 1 1/4 acres of state-of-the-art classrooms with beautiful gardens, lawns, fountains, and play areas that allow your child to play, explore, and learn.
Our Director, Kristen Barrett, is very excited to bring her knowledge and enthusiasm to the Wishing Well Preschool family. Kristen has worked with preschool children for well over a decade and has numerous certifications. She is a long time coach for soccer teams and basketball for children.
Kristen is happiest when caring for children and animals. The format of her preschool is composed of an outstanding academic readiness skills training and an emphasis on socializing children in a group setting outside of their familial niche. The format also includes music, reading, science, nature studies, gardening, drama, manipulatives, art, phonemic recognition, crafts, and care & feeding of small animals. Our program is varied throughout the day so your child will always be entertained and excited while learning to socialize with other children. We accept children 2 years and 9 months old (who've been potty trained) through 4 years and nine months old. We have 2 days per week and 3 days per week programs available.
Kristen is a mother of one very busy 3 year old. She knows of the love, aspirations, and concerns parents have for their children when only the best will do. "Your child needs to be with teachers who truly care about and respect the child as an individual. Teaching needs to be positive and enthusiastic and always setting a stellar example as a role model. It is vital that your child have a positive experience with their first teacher, which sets the tone of the child's approach and attitude towards the future." Kristen adds, "if school is fun and teachers are caring, learning is exciting and your child will approach future schooling with eager enthusiasm and a quest for learning." Kristen assures parents that their child will love the preschool and feel good about themselves and others based upon their experiences which will build high self esteem and respect for others.
Our other wonderful teacher, Amy Brown, has been with Wishing Well for 10 years. She is the mother of three. She's been married for 25 years. When Amy is not supporting her daughter in dance competitions or her eagle scout son who's a karate black belt instructor for young kids, she enjoys kayaking and being in her pool.
"Teachers who love teaching teach children to love learning"
We have a constantly changing variety of indoor activities that encompass manipulatives, dramatic play areas, science and nature tables, reading areas, obstacle courses and exploration areas. We also have a large variety of interesting, stimulating and entertaining toys and play centers that aid in fine motor skill development and eye-hand coordination.
Our outdoor setting is separated into two areas. The first is a fantastic play area that that is complete with slides, swings, forts and playhouses so your child can explore and play while they develop their large motor skills and learn to socialize with their peers. The second area is a beautiful garden setting where children can plant and tend to vegetables, flowers and fruits and interact with small animals (bunny, goat). We also have an area where we periodically have outdoor crafts projects that are fun and exciting. Our program also incorporates a "circle time" where the children gather for a short educational event for learning as well as music, singing and dance.
You can leave your child with us and feel secure knowing that our trained staff and our completely enclosed facilities offer you the best in safety and security. Your child will be under the constant observation of personnel that are trained in your child's needs and requirements while you are free to attend to life's daily activities or just have time to yourself to relax. Kristen would love to give your family a personal tour of the facilities.
