“I love teaching the children sign language and watching how they repeat it back to me either in sentences or even just asking for something”. It brings me great joy to know as an Early Childhood Educator I can help children speak to us when they are unable to use words”.

April has been the Infant Transition Teacher for 10 years working part-time. Now she has come full-time with us in the last year. Prior to working with us she had worked for IBM for 17 years. April loves working with toddlers and infants and watching them grow and learn new experiences. In her spare time she likes to spend time with her grandchildren.
