I have been working within the Early Childhood Education realm since 1998. I have been employed by Shelton Head Start, and the Department of the Navy at the Bremerton Infant and Toddler Child Development Center. I have attended college at South Puget Sound Community College and at Olympic College, Bremerton Campus. I have worked with numerous age groups from 6 weeks to 5 years of age. I have a current Preschool/Center Based Child Development Associates Credential. I look forward to meeting you and your child as you become a part of our Co-Op family and as we all learn through play!

A note from Ann…
I believe the coop’s main focus is the social and emotional development of our preschoolers. Our philosophy is ‘Learn through play’ and I can attest to the academic foundation and kindergarten readiness our preschool provides after watching my children, my friends’ children, and the other coop preschoolers go through our coop. Coop children continue on to a very successful path of learning.
I have experienced firsthand the level of “Volunteer” our coop Parents take on through their child’s school years because of their coop involvement. I run into Parents helping in public school all the time and find out they are part of the PTA, field trip volunteers and classroom helpers because they feel comfortable joining in.
Parent involvement makes the difference. Won’t you come play with us?
