A Message from the Director
This is an exciting time for your child, although he/she may be a little apprehensive about going to school. This is also a time of mixed emotions for parents—joy that your child is ready for school, but some sadness because he/she will always be your baby!
Be assured that I will do my best to make this an enjoyable time for your child, but also a time filled with real learning. Please do not think your child will be just “playing” all day! What appears as simple games when you enter the classroom are actually activities that provide daily practice in the skills which are building blocks for your child’s future success in school!
I would like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Ms. Catherine Matson and I am delighted to be a teacher here at SELC. I have worked in early childhood for 16 years, and have my Early Childhood Associates. I also help lead my son’s Boy Scout Troop. I work very closely with my remarkable 12 year old son Evan. If we aren’t at home in Desert Hills then we are running to swim meets, Boy Scout events, or hanging with family.
Early Childhood is a time of diverse beginnings, making friends, and learning new things every day. Our students time will be filled with wonderful opportunities and experiences designed to learn, share, and grow. I look forward to getting to know all my families and students.
