The Kindergarten Enrichment Program provides child care before and after Public Kindergarten at Glenwood, Mount Pilchuck, Stevens Creek and Highland Elementary schools. Transportation to and from Country Dawn is provided by the Lake Stevens School district for Glenwood Elementary. Country Dawn privately buses to and from Mount Pilchuck, Stevens Creek and Highland Elementary schools.
My name is Emma Hoggatt, and I am the lead teacher for the Kindergarten Enrichment program. I am very excited to be working with your kindergartners. I’ve worked in the Kindergarten building with the school-aged kids since July of 2018. I love watching kids grow and learn. I have wanted to be a teacher since before I was in school. In high school I took child development and careers in education classes and have gotten the opportunity to work with many kids in different grades to help me be able to give as much quality care as possible to your child.
I have lived in Lake Stevens my whole life and graduated from Lake Stevens High School in 2018. I am currently getting my Elementary Education degree. I am fully trained in CPR, first aid and bloodborne pathogens. Working with kids has been something I’ve always wanted to do. Last year I got the chance to intern in a Kindergarten class at Hillcrest in this school district. The teacher taught me a lot, and I got to spend two class periods every day of my senior year going back to where I attended kindergarten! Outside of Country Dawn, I enjoy spending time with my little sister, my family and friends, bike riding, playing volleyball and reading.
Information about the program:
I like to have a few days a week, where we do paperwork activities before our recess and snack time. These activities will work on fine motor skills such as cutting, gluing, writing, coloring, drawing and gaining new skills. Every day of the week we will have reading time at some point in the day. Friday fun day!! Every Friday is movie day and students can bring in a “G” or “PG” movie to share with the class. On Fridays, there will also be a few art projects that will be hung up in the classroom. At Country Dawn, we are all about safety and learning. If your child needs help with anything, they can always come to me for help. I am very excited to get to know all of you and your kids. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to reach out to me.
