Toddler Classroom No. 12

Educational Specialist: Carolyn McLean


Associate Teachers: Angela Caviness, Dwylett Cook

Room 12 is an inclusive preschool classroom with 13 children and three staff members. Our children are ages two and three years old. Using the NC Foundations for early learning as a guide, our learning environment is full of educational, hands-on activities and play opportunities that foster growth and development. We also use Creative Curriculum for Preschool. This curriculum is designed to foster development of the whole child through teacher-led, small and large group activities centered around 11 interest areas (blocks, dramatic play, toys and games, art, library, discovery, sand and water, music and movement, cooking, computers, and outdoors).

Please visit our Parents tab for Resources, menus, and other important information on our website for school-wide events. For enrollment information, please contact Allie Emond at or 692-3323.

 As we continue to welcome our new friends & families to our classroom; we will support your child’s development by establishing the foundation for learning as we anticipate’’ high expectations, achievements & success’’ from all of our children. Your support is always welcomed and appreciated.
 Our final classroom transition will be Monday, August 28th as we sadly say good-bye to our friends as they will be joining their peers in the pre-school classrooms. We will miss these friends as they will always have a special place in our hearts! We happily welcome all of our new friends to classroom 12 in the days to come.  
 As we close out the summer month of August our learning theme will focus on places, events and activities while on summer vacation. The upcoming week’s theme will be Boating, Fishing, Camping as the children will make summer thematic arts & crafts, sensory play with sand and water. We will conclude the month of August as we study about the Rainforest.
 Please check your child’s book bag for appropriate clothing for seasonal weather changes. Sandals, flip-flops and crocs can cause tripping and serious injury especially when worn outside. Please have your child wear tennis shoes or place a pair in book bag to wear outside. Thank you for helping us keep the children safe.
