Faculty and Staff

 
 
Hi, my name is Marci and I'm the toddler I Teacher. I have been working in childcare for 18 years and an infant toddler supervisor. I have worked with all ages, but toddlers are definitely my favorite age. I am a mother of three and have a dog named Lola. In my spare time I love to draw, spend time with my family, and movie binge.
In my classroom we work on the basics such as: colors, numbers, animals, etc. We do a lot of reading and singing. The kids love to do art projects! we also work on our fine motor (play-doh, puzzles) and gross motor (running, jumping, throwing) skills.
I enjoy what I do and I can't wait to meet you and your child.

Family info: (nothing too personal) My mom and dad like here in Greeley so does my on and only little sister so I see them as much as I can.
Name two things that you particularly work on with kids in your room: 1) When a child does something that another child doesn't like I encourage them to use their words and explain to the other child to what the other child did and why the child who's feeling got hurt, doesn't like what they did. Then I encourage them both to say "sorry" and "I forgive you" and to go on playing.

2) I encourage the children to use their please and thank you in the sentences. For example "Miss Logan can I please get a drink of water" Instead of "Miss Logan can I have some water".
