Crayon Corner Learning Center would like to take this opportunity to update the community on the things that have been happening at the Center. Carrie (Davis) Theesfeld is our director. She and her husband Kent live in Reinbeck with their two children Jase and Ella. Carrie is also our 4 year old pre-school teacher and director at the Reinbeck Daycare Center. Carrie has worked in the daycare field for 9 years. Robin (Greve) Moore is our assistant director. She and her husband Matt live in Reinbeck with their son Landon. Robin is our 3 year old pre-school teacher and has worked in this field for 6 1/2 years. Both she and Carrie have been working closely with our kindergarten teacher to help establish curriculum that will prepare our students for their first year in elementary school. Both Carrie and Robin have close ties to Gladbrook-Reinbeck as they grew up in the communities and both graduated from Gladbrook-Reinbeck High School. The Center is open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and accepts children from the age of 6 weeks through school age. All of the classrooms have a head staff member who prepares weekly lesson plans based on a theme. Each day things such as fine motor skills, sensory perception, music, dramatic play, colors, etc. are incorporated into the lesson plans. The Center is working on day camp activities for school age children during Christmas break. The days will have themes associated with them and some of the activities will include attending a movie, a Wii tournament, crafts, and baking. The Center continues to look at ways to control our costs and other avenues to generate revenue including our spring plant sale, poinsettia fundraiser and a dinner/dance. The Center is planning on having a St. Patrick’s Day dinner and dance fundraiser on Saturday, March 16thwith great food, prizes, and silent and live auction items so mark your calendars.
