Associate Teacher: LaTearra Hill

Welcome to our class!

Room 9 is an inclusive preschool classroom with 16 children and 3 staff members. 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). 

For enrollment information please contact Allie Emond at or 692-3323
