Meet the Teacher

Mrs. Coleen Rakoczy is a trained and seasoned Registered Early Childhood Educator. She has 40 years of experience in a co-operative preschool setting.  Mrs. Rakoczy holds an up to date Standard First Aid Certificate with Infant and Child CPR, and is a member of the College of ECE's. She is committed to on-going professional development through courses, workshops and conferences specific to the field of early childhood education. 

Mrs. Marcy is currently in the apprenticeship program at Mohawk College to complete her ECE designation. She has been with our Preschool as a Member of the Board of Directors for 4 years prior to joining our classroom full time as a teacher.  Mrs. Marcy holds an up to date Standard First Aid Certificate with Child and Infant CPR.

Mrs. Rakoczy and Mrs. Marcy run our classes seamlessly. They use the Ministry approved play-based curriculum to effectively develop the children's skills based on their interests.  Using the "How Learning Happens" document, outlined by the Province of Ontario, we can better meet the needs of the children and allow them to make their own choices as both the Teachers and parents help to guide them through play.  At Peter Pan Preschool we engage the children with various activity centres, stories, songs, and play to captivate the children and to help promote early learning. Our Teachers have a gentle way of connecting the children to the task at hand, and are naturally sensitive to each child's unique learning styles and needs.

It is obvious that our Teachers are good at what they do; it is reflected in the happiness of the children who attend Peter Pan Preschool!
