Meet the Teachers
Loraine comes to us with a degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education and 13 years of experience in a preschool setting. She works Monday and Wednesday mornings. She worked this summer at Natureplay in the preschool and with summer camp. We're happy to have her continue on into the school year!
Rosanna has worked for JCPRD as a early childhood director since 2002. She opened Natureplay in 2013 with one child. She has degrees in biology and early childhood education and has a serious passion for nature education!
Katherine started in July 2013. She's working on her degree in early childhood education (we've convinced her to change her major since she's just so awesome!). Katherine loves catching frogs and learning about nature with the children.
