Premier Preschool Opens Its Doors To The Lower Hudson Valley Community
Little Professors Preschool announces its grand opening, scheduled for September 4, 2018. Located at 5 Cascade Rd., Amenia, NY 12501. The new preschool is headed by born and raised, Webutuck High School Honor Student Mrs. Amber Dunlavey. Mrs. Dunlavey will lead a staff of experienced educators and aides at the preschool.
With a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Childhood Education, birth-6th grade and a Master's degree in Literacy with an Emphasis in Elementary Education, Mrs. Dunlavey is heavily rooted in education. Prior to taking on the role of Director at Little Professors, Mrs. Dunlavey worked as a teacher and mentor at The Institute for Collegiate and Career Studies. She is also a certified life coach. As a committed educator, Mrs. Dunlavey understands the importance of quality childcare and education, and aims to use her background in education and leadership to bring a distinct set of skills and strengths to the new preschool serving Amenia and surrounding communities.
Little Professors Preschool’s play-based approach, called P.L.A.I.℠, Play, Learn, Achieve & Inspire, is grounded in research on how children learn best: children experience the deepest, most genuine learning when they are having fun. At Little Professors, the focus is on nurturing creativity, imagination, critical- thinking, problem-solving, and an appreciation of our cultural diversity to provide a well-rounded experience and ensure each one becomes confident, joyful and fully prepared in school and in life. Little Professors will maintain a low student-to-teacher ratio, allowing it to foster the individual growth of each child. The P.L.A.I.℠ curriculum integrates reading, math, writing, the sciences, art and play. The preschool will offer specialized instruction in vocal & instrumental music; two and three-dimensional art; and physical education to stimulate the early development of every young student.
“As the Director of Little Professor's, I hope to instill a joy of learning into my students. I want to set a positive tone for the rest of their educational career. That was done for me, which is how I developed a passion for education and children. I want all of the children who attend Little Professors to leave with a smile on their face, and love in their heart. I designed P.L.A.I.℠ curriculum to teach and implement 21st century educational tools, reinforcing social behaviors such as communication, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration. This philosophy fosters a lifelong love of learning and creates meaningful connections at an early age,” says Mrs. Dunlavey. “We are excited to bring such a creative and progressive program to the Lower Hudson Valley and we invite the entire community with children between the ages of 3 to 5 to give us a ring or to stop by to learn about the great things we have planned for our ‘little’ ones.”
Little Professors Preschool will be hosting open houses for any families interested in meeting Mrs. Dunlavey and learning more about the preschool program.
