Preschoolers begin classes today, discover a whole new world of learning!
Learning how to build a star out of shapes, to learning how to take turns talking at “Circle Time,” WDC preschoolers were busy little Wolverines on their first day of school on Sept. 8.
“We had a great first day,” said WDC Preschool Coordinator Patti Isaacson, who’s in her 25th year of teaching preschool at Wadena-Deer Creek.
In the three preschool classrooms, the 3- and 4-year-old youngsters make new friends, discover new toys, learn how to listen to their teachers and paras, get accustom to a new routine, and learn about shapes, counting, colors, just to name a few. More importantly though, they also adjust to being away from mom and dad. However, that separation might be tougher on the parents!
As of today, 103 preschoolers are enrolled at Wadena-Deer Creek Preschool, which is located in the southwest wing of the elementary school. In addition to Mrs. Isaacson, the preschool teaching team includes Alicia Johnson, who is in her 10th year, and Jan Bernu, who is in her second year.
Wadena-Deer Creek Preschool has earned a Four-Star Parent Aware rating. To earn a Four-Star Rating, which is the highest rating, WDC's preschool program excels in the use of most of the practices that best prepare children for kindergarten.
"It confirms that we have staff and programming of high quality and it should be comforting to parents who seek a caring and nurturing preschool environment for their child’s first school experience,” said Louis Rutten. WDC Elementary Principal.
