Pre-Toddler & Toddlers



Pre-Toddler Program: Ms. Rose 






Welcome to Pre-Toddlers! My name is Rose and I would like to tell you a little about myself, to get to know me better. I have worked at Country Dawn for almost nine years. The first three years I worked part-time in Pre-Kindergarten and subbed in other classrooms. Now it will be six years working in PreToddlers and was given the opportunity to be the lead teacher three years ago.


I have completed 20 hours of STARS Merit training, CPR/First Aid Training, HIV/AIDS blood born pathogens class. I will also continue to take classes that are offered throughout the year.


I’m fluent in Spanish, which I plan to teach the children colors and numbers in Spanish for example. My goal is caring for your child and to create a fun, safe, supportive and nurturing environment.


We are looking forward to getting to know you and your child. Listed below are a few essential tips, hints and reminders that will help us all have a smooth transition when coming to school.


Toddler Program: Ms. Diane 




My name is Diane Songstad. I will be working with your children in the Toddler Program. I am excited to be caring for your child!  Toddlers are a busy group, lots of growing, learning and changing during this year!

I have completed 20-hours of Merit training and I am continuing the 10-hour yearly requirement.  I will be attending more training throughout the year.   I am also qualified in CPR, First Aid and AED.


I have lived in Lake Stevens since 1980.  For 17 years I had an in-home childcare. I have also spent a few years working in another childcare center.  I have been with Country Dawn since October of 2002.


My time away from Country Dawn is spent with family, including 5 grandchildren, camping, photography, crafting, Harley riding and lots of yard work!  I enjoy baking with and for my grandchildren and reading is a favorite pastime also!


I am looking forward to getting to know both you and your child.  I have lots of ideas for fun and creative learning that your child will be bringing home to share with you!

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
