The Junior Kindergarten welcomes children who have completed a successful pre-school experience but have not yet reached the age requirement for Kindergarten, and is also open to those who can benefit from additional time to develop social/emotional skills, independence and academic readiness before entering a full and more challenging Kindergarten program.

Meet Teacher Edna Director, Lil’ Learners Preschool

“Edna English” sounds like some sort of Superhero Teacher. If you knew Edna, you would agree that this name fits her perfectly! We were so fortunate that Edna answered our cry when we set out to find a new preschool teacher for our Lil’ Learners Preschool Program 3½ years ago. Since then, she has evolved our preschool into a very successful morning & afternoon program. She has also introduced an afternoon Spanish Immersion Preschool program, Camp High-5, A Parent/Me Class and Junior Kindergarten! Edna is amazingly passionate about her job, her kids… and some of her personal interests ( to which we lovingly refer to, as her ‘geeking out’, in a good way). We had interviewed her this summer and had her answer some basic personal questions. She answered them in a very matter-of-fact way, somehow thinking that she had to “tone it down” for professionalism’s sake. I told her that our audience would likely prefer her overflowing enthusiasm, as we sell ourselves as purveyors of experience and fun! You see, Edna LOVES her job. I mean…she REALLY LOVES her job. Hopefully this is apparent in her response. How many years have you been teaching preschool? You mean, how many years have I been doing exactly what I want to do and have had the best job on earth? 13.

What is the best part about teaching preschool? The best part about teaching preschool is being around amazing kids. I love how preschoolers get excited when they try something for the first time. I love watching them build confidence as they master a new skill. I have the best conversations with preschoolers. Also, this is my happy place. No matter what is going on in my life, I will ALWAYS come to work. This is where I feel normal, and honestly, how could you be anything but HAPPY in this classroom! Fun Fact About Edna I collect Lego Mini-Figures*. When buying the series mini-figures, I can even feel through the packaging to find specific figures. *Important to note, Edna more than collects “Mini-Figs,” she is obsessed. Words cannot describe…. but a picture speaks 1000 words!

with Such a Voice, Lisa Foster VOICE-OVERS are hot today! You don’t have to be an actor to get voice-over work, but it certainly doesn’t hurt! With such notable talent as Morgan Freeman, Glenn Close, and Alec Baldwin lending their voices to commercials, films, and videos, one would think that it would be next to impossible to break into this field. Not so! You’ll learn about an exciting, new way to get around the competition and actually turn voice-overs into a thriving full or part-time business! Lisa Foster will discuss the voice-over business as a whole, the numerous opportunities, the incredible income potential, and will discuss the all-important “demo” and how to have it produced. You’ll step up to the mic and do some practice recording, and best of all, you’ll hear the results! NO REFUNDS 7 DAYS PRIOR TO CLASS START DATE.

Family Members Age 11+ with Paige Tyson. Questions about class content? Call 209.532.6269 Beginning: In this class, your dog is taught to sit, down, stay, come, heel and easy (walking nicely at the end of the leash without pulling). The dog is taught to move freely and easily with the collar, so one day you barely have to use it. The dog is also taught to perform things and to willingly do or not do things, not just be prevented from doing them. Verbal and/or physical praise from owner is given. This builds a relationship between owner and dog. Any specific problems you are having will be addressed and cured in class or by a lifestyle change at home. You will need a 6 foot comfortable leash. Instructor will supply the nylon collar. Intermediate: This class will instruct students in off-leash control. This is done with the addition of a 30 foot long line. ALL Dogs must have current rabies and distemper vaccinations. A 6 foot comfortable leash is required. Special nylon choke collar included in fee. Minimum owner age is 11 years old.

Tai Chi Chuan Whole Body Movement

with Linda Scheer, M.S. Vocational Rehab, practicing Tai Chi since 1988 and teaching since 1995.
