[05/11/17]   As I have been getting calls to fill classes for next year, I need to let everyone know that I will not longer be doing preschool after this year. My family needs more of my time. It is truly bittersweet to retire after doing this for 9 years. If you know of someone who would be a great preschool teacher and would like some of my materials (including the awesome reading program), please let them know. Thanks!

[10/03/16]   Due to moving, etc, we have had 2 spots open up in the morning class. One is 4 days a week ($160/mo) and the other is Tues/Thur ($90). Tell your friends :)

[07/22/16]   Hey everyone, I am really looking forward to the start of the school year on August 22nd! If anyone has not turned in their application or knows of anyone who is looking for preschool, I only have 3 openings in the afternoon class (the morning class is full). I am also looking for an assistant for the afternoon class in trade for your child's tuition. If you know of anyone, send them my way. The afternoon class is 12:30 to 2:30 Mon/Wed/Thurs and costs $125/month. I am sorry my website is still down but we are definitely open for business so call me at 861-6970. If you have website building skills, I am interested in trading tuition for your time.

This is a compelling reason to expose your preschooler to so many wonderful things. Maria Montessori said that children of this age have an absorbent mind. It is effortless for them to learn many things. The mind changes dramatically after the age of 6.

[04/25/13]   Wanted to let you know that the 4 year-old morning class only has 4 spots available for next year. There are quite a few applications out, and it is first come, first serve so if you are really hoping for morning get those apps in quick.

[04/22/13]   Today we talked a lot about being responsible for our earth. Your child is bringing home a reusable grocery bag that they decorated. I wanted you to know that it is machine washable. Also ask your child about looking into my compost bin. They will probably tell you it is a little smelly. What did your child like most about today?

We have just updated the LJA website and I am so excited to now have a real calendar on the site. We also have all the available pictures up in the yearbook section. Check it out! What do you think? (And let me know if there are any glitches)


This just made my day. Any other students excited to use their new place-mat?

Sofia couldn't wait to use her new "My Plate" placemat and plate. :)

[03/11/13]   What did you think of the Boise Aquarium field trip? There is a limited amount of space for the big group that came, but what could have been done better? What did you/your child enjoy?

[01/01/13]   I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I look forward to seeing all my wonderful students tomorrow.

[10/10/12]   Any comments on the field trip today? What did you like? What suggestions do you have? If you attended Linder Farms with us in the past, how does the Farmstead compare? Feedback would be GREATLY appreciated.

[10/07/12]   We are taking our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. I thought I would throw out an invitation to any past and/or future LJA students to join us Tuesday morning. Message or email me for details if you want to come.

[10/03/12]   I thought it was time to get this page going as a place for people to post questions and ideas about what is going on at preschool. I want all of us to feel connected and understood. So please let's get talking!

[12/13/10]   Welcome everyone to our page! We want everyone to feel free to ask questions, post pictures and repond to others' comments.
