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.
