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 be learning to recognize, trace, and write our names! We will also learn how to hold a pencil properly and start some scissor skills!
*
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.
