"Shining Stars" 3-yr olds

We welcome you and your child to the Shining Stars class!
Monday thru Thursday
Teachers: Susie Heath and Kolleen Hancock

Ms. Susie: I grew up here in Arden, NC and went to College at Lenoir-Rhyne University where I received a BA in Religious Studies: Christian Education.  I spent 12 years doing youth and family ministry at several churches as well as working many summers at Camp Lutheridge.  After my Lord and Savior, my son Carson (10), daughter Courtney (7) and husband Dave are the true blessings in my life.  Both my children have been through 4 years of Nativity Preschool and loved it!  My family and I love going for hikes in the mountains, playing at the beach and spending time with each other.
Ms. Kolleen:  I was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, FL.  In 93' I moved to North Carolina and attended high school and college. I have been lucky enough to be a stay at home mom for the last 13 years. I am blessed to have a great husband, Brent and two wonderful daughters, Abey (13) and Rylee (10). 
I love spending time with my family. I enjoy hiking, watching my girls play volleyball and sitting by the pool. I am thankful to start my first year here at Nativity Preschool in the Shining Stars. I look forward to getting to know each and every family. 

The preschool stage of development is a period of rapid growth and learning.  With the proper encouragement and guidance, young children are 
able to start developing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to succeed in school and beyond.  Our focus is on building a strong foundation 
for success by helping our students to grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.  We feel that this growth can best be accomplished in a relaxed and caring environment that respects the child’s individuality and natural ability to learn.
