Positive preschool

Dear Editor:

Our family would like to give a heartfelt thanks to Waldkinder Preschool.

Waldkinder Preschool has been an integral part of our family’s life for the past five years. Our two young daughters who attended Waldkinder will never forget their preschool. Their experiences adventuring around the valley with their friends and beloved teachers have been imprinted in their little minds forever.

Stories from school are continually shared as we travel our local landscape as a family:  “That’s where we found the dead fish!”; “There’s a lake up there that you can walk around and find birds’ nests.”; “Remember we found cocoons on the Ditch Trail!”;  “You can eat this plant Mom.  Try it!”  

Their stories also include adventures meeting various community members and seeing how things work behind the scenes at places like the Aspen Water Sanitation Facility or discovering the wonders of the CDOT operation inside the Hanging Valley Tunnels.  

We are grateful that our children know this area more intimately than us and happy to have years of stories to connect us to it.

A thousand thanks to Founder and Director Karen Grey and to all of our wonderful teachers: Ali Wade, Mary Russell, Kelly LeMere, Suzanne Luck, Rebecca Segal and Maria Sabljak.  We love you!  Thank you for providing this experience in our community.
