Perky Penguins-Full Day Preschool

Teaching preschoolers is a joyful challenge, as they are embarking on making that step from baby/toddler to little person. Their minds are like sponges and they possess the desire to absorb everything you give to them.
The Penguins' staff is nurturing, loving and giving to each child. We share the joys of their victories when they accomplish new things and the sorrow of the stumbling blocks when they can't quite grasp something so close within their reach.
Our goal is to guide their young minds in their play and learning, so that they are eager and excited for each adventure in learning and learning something new each day.
We work on basic letter, number and name recognition as well as shapes and colors. We also spend a great deal of time helping them develop their social skills and learning to follow a routine.

Miss Kim-Lead Teacher - I have been a member of the NPCDC staff since 2006. I love teaching three and four year olds. They have so many questions and they really desire to know “why” and “how”. I have been married to my husband, Joe, since 1980. We have two children and two grandchildren. I grew up in the area, graduated from Nordonia and live in Sagamore Hills. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and our two pit bulls, as well as sewing, crafting, and gardening.

Miss Lisa - Assistant Teacher - This is my 4th year teaching at Northfield Presbyterian Church Daycare Center. I have 3 children - 2 adult sons, and a daughter graduating next year. I also have a 3 year old granddaughter and a 7 month old grandson. I dreamed of being a teacher and a nurse since 2nd grade. After many years in medical, I came to the daycare and instantly fell in love with all the children, their families, and our staff. This is truly the best place that I have every worked and do not consider it a job. In teaching with humor and encouragement, I am able to enjoy the progress of every class which is amazing and what I am most grateful for every day. My passions are my faith, family/friends, teaching, music/dance, reading beaches and horses.
