Diane has added Spanish to the daily curriculum and enjoys teaching the language joyously with song, dance and finger plays. “Each child is different and it is a pleasure to get to know every individual. We do our best to give them the foundation for their education: love for learning, successful social skills and positive self esteem. I am so lucky to have a job I love” Ella habla Espanol.
