Welcome to Our Pre-Kindergarten Classroom

About Ms. Venditti:
I will be starting my 16th year of teaching. I  have  been teaching at Woodrow Wilson in the Wee Wonders Pre-K for all my years teaching. I am originally from Norton, MA (near Boston) and moved to NC when I was in the tenth grade. I may be a "Northern Yankee", but I truly love it here in the South! I love to read books, and spend time with my friends and family. One of my other favorite things to do is watch baseball, especially the Boston Red Sox. I also enjoy spending time with my  "fur-baby", my cat, Lilly! 

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Child and Family Development from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2002, and received my Master's Degree in Child and Family Studies from UNCC in 2010

About Mrs. Taylor:
I will be starting my 2nd year at Woodrow Wilson. I am excited to work with the Pre-K. I have my Bachelors degree in Social Work. I also enjoy spending time with my family, baking cakes, and providing personal training.

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:

Bachelor's in Social Work from the University of Toledo

Educational Philosophy/Vision:
We love working with children and enjoy getting to know each individually and their family.  We teach the children that our class is their school family. We want them to learn to get along with one another, and respect each other. We teach that it is their classroom, and they are responsible for helping to keep it clean and take care of our toys. We also teach the children that as a community working together like a family, we can  accomplish many things and look out for each another

What we are learning:

Our Wee Wonders Pre-K is a five star licensed program that provides NC Pre-K in the Kannapolis City School district. We are a hands on, nurturing, learning environment. Our goal is for your child to become ready to enter kindergarten and to learn valuable social, emotional, physical development skills along with high quality age appropriate academics. We consider ourselves the first step your child will take in entering their school career.

We use the Creative Curriculum that is researched based to be child friendly. We also use the Letter Land curriculum to teach letters, sounds and writing skills. Please visit the links on my class website to learn more about these curriculums and to visit some wonderful school readiness websites your child can enjoy.
