Staff Spotlight: Margaret Grace

Every family has the pleasure of meeting Margaret Grace during enrollment and the continued pleasure of seeing her at GPS each day! Margaret is the Director of Admissions and her experience both as a mother and as an educator guides families during the admissions process. Joining the Golden Pond community in 2008 as a substitute teacher, Margaret was impressed with the refreshing learning approach of the experiential, theme-based curriculum. She has been an assistant teacher in our Private Kindergarten, Kindergarten Enrichment, Threes, and Lunch Bunch programs. "Admissions is all about finding the right fit and making a match between a student and a school. I appreciate our wonderful Golden Pond families and the fantastic staff I work with every day!"

Did You Know?! Nursery Rhymes are good for the brain! The rhyming and alliteration teach children how language works and builds memory capabilities in a fun and imaginative way! At GPS we teach Nursery Rhymes in all of our programs to build early literacy. Children learn about Humpty Dumpty by experimenting with dropping eggs from a wall while trying to keep it from breaking!

Teamwork makes the dream work! The Explorer team is planning for a great year!

3 cheers for a great first day of Kindergarten, Extended School and Stay & Play!! We are all looking forward to a fantastic year!
