Why am I so passionate about Preschool and homeschooling families? Hi, I am Mrs. Lewis (Ms. Kora) and I have been an Educator for 23 years! In the beginning of my career I taught Pre-Kindergarten, then after a couple of years I became a Director for a very large private Preschool. I later decided to open a company to train Preschool Teachers and Preschool Directors, this also lead me down the path to become a College Instructor; teaching future Early Learning/Preschool Teachers.
I am very passionate about Early Education (Preschool- Pre-Kindergarten) because those years are the foundational years; it is the time when children are gaining their first experiences with the world around them and others. I love being a part of that experience and helping to shape it as well.
My purpose for creating SmartKids Preschool Enrichment Online is because I have a 4 year old son and I spend my days working from home and homeschooling him. I find so much joy teaching him and I find so much joy teaching future Teachers how to support young learners, so starting the online Preschool allows me to live out my full -passion. Also, Preschool is the foundation of teaching and learning and it has always been my dream to help young children thrive.
Our program gives families an alternativeto local preschool, it is a choice for Homeschool families and families who want to provide their child with a variety of learning esperiences. My program focuses Quality Preschool education through Developmentally Appropriate Practices (DAP), Kindergarten readiness and Advocates for Early Literacy Development.
You will find that my program is literacy enriched because children who develop strong early literacy skills have a great headstart in their education to be successful, kids who do not fail miserably and statistics show that a vast majority fail in their lives as they become adults. My goal is to create a program that fosters literacy development early on in young children.
