Infant Program: Ms. Marisela
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, and give you and your infant a warm welcome into the Country Dawn family. My name is Marisela Hernandez and I will be your child’s lead teacher this year. This will be my fifth year working in the infant room, but I have been working almost eight years at Country Dawn. I have completed my 20 hours of STARS training and certification in CPR, First Aid & HIV/AIDS.
I would like to tell you a few things about myself. I am twenty-eight years old, I was born in Queretaro, Mexico. I have two older brothers, Oscar and Edgar. I love being an auntie, and spending time with my two niece’s, Jennifer and Joanna and my nephew Edgar. I also enjoy reading, Italian food and going jogging.
Our main goal is to help your child on a number of skills throughout the year. We will do a lot of practicing when it comes to tummy time, rolling over, sitting up, pulling up and eventually walking. We like to get creative, so every month we will have a different project and an activity involving painting and coloring. Throughout the day we will read books and sing songs. As they start being more independent and moving around more on their own, during the spring and summer we have outside play, weather permitting. We play an array of nursery rhyme music as well as music from different cultures to incorporate diversity in the classroom. Once a month, a consulting nurse comes to our classroom to visit with us and answer any staff and/or parent questions. She also updates us on illness, child development, and other current information regarding your child’s health. If there are any specific details or goals you would like us to work on with your child, please feel free to talk to us.
CDC Assessments are provided to families each fall and spring. Teacher Parent Conferences start in the Preschool Classrooms, however a conference is provided to any of our families when requested. Country Dawn also participates in Early Achievers, which is Washington’s Quality Rating and Improvement System. (www.del.wa.gov)
I look forward to meeting and getting to know you and your child in the infant room.
