Diana & Amanda

Amanda is a California-Credentialed teacher with 10 years experience teaching in public schools both in the UK and US. She has taught preschool for twelve years.  Amanda uses her music teaching background with her preschoolers daily. “It’s wonderful that we get to know the whole family, and I love watching the children’s friendships develop!”

Diana leads a circle time.

Diana is pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Development. Diana is a huge sports fan, especially basketball. She is cheerful, patient, optimistic and passionate about helping children. “My goal is for a child to go home happy and look forward to coming back the next day. My ultimate goal is for a child to say, ‘I became the better person I am today because of my teacher Diana’.”
