Ms. Rachel


Dear Parents,

My name is Rachel Iqbal and I am the lead teacher of before and after school care here at Country Dawn. I have been here at the Kindergarten Building for five years, working with the school age kids. Watching the kids learn and grow is such a rewarding experience and it such a joy to be a part of the children's experience. I have always loved working with kids and took classes in high school such as child development and careers in education, to help me be able to give as much quality care as possible. Currently I am going to Everett Community College, working towards elementary education.

Information about our program:

I like to start off by having group time, where I ask the kids about their day, read a book to them, and discuss weekly jobs on our job part. Every Friday we have a fun and easy cooking project before we start our movie day which also takes place every Friday. On movie day children are allowed to bring a "G" or "PG" movie otherwise we do have age appropriate movies options for the kids. Once a week we try to a science experiment. Every month we follow a different theme which will be posted on our parent board. Art activities are planned according to the theme of the month and are displayed throughout the room for everyone to enjoy. We at Country Dawn are all about teaching and learning. If at any time a child needs help with schoolwork or homework we do have homework time where I or another teacher is available to help.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me at 425-334-5412.
