My name is Yvonne Toomey, the kids call me Miss Yvonne. I am certified to teach preschool by the state of Mass, I have been here teaching our littlest learners for a long time and loving every minute of it.
When you set up a visit or a play date with your child You will see that our classrooms are positive and productive with warm and inviting spaces. A love for learning and friendship comes natural in a friendly learning environment. An entire floor of our home is dedicated to our program, it is clean, bright, smoke free and just a happy place to learn and play.
Pumpkin Patch Preschool is a small private program for preschool age children only. Our small group size of no more than 10 children each day allow us to give each child the best care and attention. We are friendly and relaxed here, our families get to know each other and our kids develop a real sense of belonging.
I use a combination of teaching techniques. Learning through play is purposeful play set up to maximize experiences and positive interactions. Structured class time and routines are a daily part of becoming kindergarten ready. Our curriculum is fun and designed to teach your child everything they need to know for kindergarten and beyond. One of my favorite teaching tools is an award winning literacy program called Zoo-Phonics. Children who are with us for both years Preschool and Pre-K typically master letter recognition and letter sounds, blending letter sounds, reading words and practicing site words. We send a few kids off to kindergarten as readers each year. We send all of our kids off to kindergarten as super confident little people.
All of this is done through fun and games, positive reinforcement, and a dedicated teacher who loves to teach (that's me :)
