Welcome Back, QACP: Letters from our 2017/18 Teachers & Co-Chairs

Dear QACP Families,

Welcome to the start of our 2017-2018 preschool year.  I’m looking forward to meeting all of the new parents and children and to re-connecting with returning families.  This year will be bittersweet for me as it will be my 32nd and last year sharing in the lives of so many amazing preschoolers.  When I first came to QACP I taught all of the younger classes (tots, 2’s and 3’s) then in my second year I began teaching all of the classes.  At that time, the oldest class was called the 4’s class (currently called Pre-K) and those children are now in their mid-thirties!  I can’t quite wrap my mind around that fact, but it has been a wonderful journey and I’m really going to cherish this last year with all of you.

Tots I – Teacher Linda, Tots II – Teacher Nanci, Twos – Teacher Linda, Threes – Teacher Nanci, and Pre-K – Teacher Nanci/Teacher Linda

We are excited for Nanci to join us and know she will be a valuable addition to our school.  Please help us give her a warm QACP welcome!

Hello Families!

I am so excited to rejoin QACP.  Our family was involved with this coop for nine years from 2002-2011. We loved our time at the coop.   My three daughters and I enjoyed the daily class activities.  My husband liked hearing stories, being a part of the community, and trying to figure out class when he would substitute. We all benefited from the community and appreciated the opportunity to get to know the children in the school.  My children remain friends with and are in school with many of their preschool companions. You are in a special place.  I am happy to be a part of this community again and look forward to helping your children make discoveries and gain skills.  I also hope to teach parents some new songs and share ideas as we work together to make this a great year!
