A Warm Welcome to our new Preschool Director

It is with great excitement that we would like to announce Diane Connell as our new Preschool Director! After an extensive search, Diane comes to The Country School from CSUN, where she has been working as a child development specialist in their early intervention program/clinic.

Working within CSUN’s Language, Speech and Hearing Clinic/Early Intervention Program for developmentally-delayed infants and toddlers, she has planned, designed, and implemented curriculum and activities  for cognitive and social emotional development. Her experience at CSUN’s clinic will allow Diane to come to The Country School with a diverse knowledge of the most current child development approaches and practices. Her involvement in a play-based environment using developmentally-appropriate activities aligns perfectly with TCS’s play-based, emergent curriculum.

As of this past June, Diane holds a current Site Supervisor Permit from the California Commission on Teaching Credentialing, and is ready to join the Preschool team both as a colleague and a leader. When you see Diane on the yard, please join us in welcoming her to our TCS family.
