Bio Coming Soon!

      CCNS is a licensed preschool by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. One of the licensing requirements requires all our lead teachers to have Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education or Elementary Education and hold a Pennsylvania Teaching Certificate. 

On teaching preschool:  I absolutely love working with preschoolers! There is nothing more rewarding than seeing their eyes light up when they learn something new or realize they can do something they couldn't before. Their energy and laughter is contagious and it makes working with them fun every day!
