Welcome to my site!  My name is Lauren Birkhead and this is my 11th year teaching preschool in New Kent County and my 14th year teaching overall. 

I love preschool.  I feel so fortunate to be in a position to have fun every day while I work.  I am a firm believer in learning through play.  Children must develop a love of learning at a young age to be inspired and continue the life long journey.  A large portion of our school day will be spent in centers where the children get to choose a play area.  The adults in the room will help guide their play, including interactions with other children, in order to achieve learning goals. 

The home school connection is incredibly important; especially with the little ones who may not be able to articulate clearly what they are doing in school.  Please feel free to contact me at any time.
