playing with the kids and making sure they're happy &

photographer--Ms. Azu LOVES taking pictures of the
kids throughout the day and posting them for parents
to enjoy.  All four teachers are full qualified Infant

The Funky Monkeys are all great friends. Whenever

teachers dancing, singing, talking using sign-
language & Spanish, enjoying an art project, reading,
and ALWAYS laughing.
The Two's Teachers
(Groovy Guppies)
Mss. Dede and Christine
Our Groovy Guppies teachers are truly fantastic!  They are
nurturing, energetic, and extremely creative in implementing a
Two's curriculum, which includes academics, art, music &
movement, expanding one's attention span as well as potty
training.  Ms. Christine was a Two's teacher for several years
before joining Future Stars several years ago, and brings a wealth
of experience in preschool education.  Ms. Dede is a mom and
knows how to bring nurturing coupled with structure to the Two's
class.  The two of them are fun, silly,creative, and have an amazing

during Circle Time, use the potty, respect one-another, and most
importantly enjoy their first experience in preschool.

Mss. Tanya and Erin

classroom and sharing what they've learned.  Ms. Sarah is
one of the most senior members of Future Stars.  She has a
wealth of experience and creativity and is one of the most
dedicated teachers a school could ask for!  Ms. Paola who's
been with the school for over seven years, brings her great
attitude, a ton of childcare knowledge, and her great smile into
the classroom each and everyday; it's no wonder that she is
adored by the children.

engage a group of spirited four year olds in any activity
or task.  Both are fun, witty, and very well- respected
and loved by the children..
