Welcome to Preschool With MRS. ASHLEY!
My name is Ashley Moufarge-Bardwell. I graduated in 2010 from Southern New Hampshire
University with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. I also have my
Early Childhood Education Certificate from NHCTC that I also obtained in 2010. I have previously
taught multiple different age groups starting from 6 weeks old, all the way up to 2nd grade.
I have been a teacher in Manchester, NH for the past 10+ years. My passion is watching the
children learn something on their own. There is no greater feeling or satisfaction.
I currently reside in Manchester, NH with my husband Jaime, and my two daughters Madison
& Abigail. I absolutely love to swim, cook, and do any arts/crafts you can imagine! The
more color and decorations the better!
Welcome to Preschool! I am so excited for this school year! I have lots of fun, educational, creative, and memorable activities planned for the children. We will explore using science – sand & water tables, art – coloring & painting, math / manipulatives – sorting & lacing, dramatic play – housekeeping & kitchen.
There will be lots of story time, dancing, singing, building, and outside play!
We will be learning colors, shapes, letters, and numbers. We will also be learning to recognize, trace, and write our names!
For the months of December, January, and February we will be focusing on the following themes:
– Winter, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa (December)
– Winter, New Years, MLK Jr (January)
– Winter, Ground Hog Day, Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, Dental Health Month (February)
I will be asking each child to bring in a family photo that can be left at school for the year. This tends to help when children may be missing their family during the school day.
I will also be asking for playdoh. We tend to go through lots of playdoh. I will send out a Sign-Up Genius asking for families to make playdoh for the class. I have a simple recipe if needed.
Please be sure to send your child in with the following items daily:
– Snack / Lunch in a lunch box with an ice pack and utensils if needed, Backpack, Masks (2), Refillable Water Bottle, and a placemat for snack / lunch.
