Our preschool classrooms are the second stepping stone at Counterpoint School. Our children begin to work on handwriting, name recognition and problem solving. Our teachers encourage the children to explore the world around them using cognitive and creative developmental tools.
Ms. Stephanie was born and raised in Colorado Springs, where she has gained over 5 years of experience working with children of all ages. She has directed summer camps, coordinated and lead several District 20 site schools, taught many of her own classes, as well as developed a service learning program for District 11 youth where she even gave seminars to schools all over the state of Colorado about her program and experience. Ms. Stephanie has an associates degree in both general studies and art, on top of being a certified nursing assistant. While she loves people and her teaching reflects this, children are her passion. She is a firm believer in student lead teaching and enhancing knowledge through the many teaching moments the day presents and well as through the child's imagination. Ms. Stephanie is excited for the many endeavors and fun moments she will be having with the children at Counterpoint School.
Ms. Viviana (Ms. V)
Hi, I'm Viviana, or as the "littles" call me, Ms. V! I am looking forward to getting to know each of you along with your beautiful children. I hope to bring the knowledge and understanding I've gained from my 12 years of childcare experience to an already engaging environment. I believe every child is special and unique, especially in the way they learn. I will strive to meet the needs of each child in my care and to help cultivate their learning capabilities. My childcare experience ranges from being a full-time nanny, to before and after school Preschool Director, to working one on one with children in an elementary school setting. I have completed my Early Childhood Education courses and am on my way to becoming a fully credentialed Kindergarten teacher. I have a love for literature and art and cannot wait to incorporate that into our everyday learning and curriculum. I am originally from Southern California, but have called Colorado my home for the past 9 Years. I enjoy all the outdoor adventures this beautiful state has to offer - hiking and camping are one of my greatest pastimes. I am also addicted to reading, I am a major foodie, and I love good music. I also have a 5-year-old daughter who is the light of my life!
Our Sprouts program is a first step into preschool. Our children focus on the building blocks of learning, starting with their color concepts and growing through the stages of alphabet and number recognition. Our highly qualified teachers nuture and guide our children through this journey in the northern wing of the building.
