Our new full-time Assistant Director Kathleen Sawyer, is a child-focused professional who graduated from Fitchburg State University in 1986 with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education. For five years she worked as a second-grade teacher at a private school in Reading, MA.
After the birth of her first child she moved back to her hometown of Sudbury, MA and worked for five years as a Lead Preschool Teacher at Regis College Lab school in Weston, MA. During this time she attended several courses at Regis College and earned her Director I Certification. She mentored practicum students about how to interact with and teach young children when developing an emergent and age-appropriate curriculum. After the birth of her second son, Kathleen served as the Director/Lead Teacher for a small toddler program at Peace Lutheran Church in Wayland, MA. For 18 years she gained valuable experience working with Early Intervention while working hand-in-hand with parents to write Individual Education Plans (IEP).
Kathleen is a focused advocate for children and has the qualifications to oversee our daily operations, along with, and in the absence of, Miss Jenn. Kathleen will also spend time in the Family Child Care building in order to get to know her incoming students. She comes highly recommended due to her excellent compliance history while running her program in Wayland, and she demonstrates a warm and wonderful style of communication with each child.
We are thrilled Miss Kathleen joined our team of teachers! As Assistant Director to owner Jennifer Eckler, Kathleen is enriching the Preschool curriculum and providing administrative support to the two classrooms (Terrific Twos and Preschool) here at the Wright Farm Schoolhouse. Pictured here, Miss Kathleen is standing on the left.
Our full-time certified Teacher Assistant, Sarah Eckler, is a 2017 Cum Laude graduate of Framingham State University with a BA in Sociology. She works with Miss Kathleen and contributes to the daily planning of the Terrific Twos emergent curriculum.
Miss Sarah's favorite part of teaching is when she can see the kids using the tools she taught them to problem solve, or come to a conclusion about something all on their own. She enjoys seeing the children be able to help one another. Miss Sarah enjoys when the children are all engaged in an activity because that shows her that they are very interested and want to learn more!
She brings her energy, warmth, and sense of humor to work - and the children love her! She is efficient, and is quick to make each child smile. Pictured here, Miss Sarah is standing on the right.
Our Schoolhouse opened its doors in October of 2017 and the children love it!
Families enroll their children to stay with us until they are prepared to step up to the exciting world of kindergarten. Our amazing teachers makes sure each child has a positive self image, solid fine motor skills with the ability to self regulate themselves within their little community of classmates. These are milestones noted in the kindergarten screening process.
There are two classrooms in the Wright Farm Schoolhouse. "Terrific Twos" and "Preschool". Children aged 15-32 months are enrolled in Terrific Twos. Children aged 33 months to kindergarten are enrolled in Preschool.
Miss Kathleen is the Lead Teacher of Terrific Twos and Miss Sarah is the Teacher Assistant. Miss Renee and Miss Kelli are our preschool teachers. Please take a moment to read more about our Teachers below!
"Wright Farm Sudbury has put so much thought into the layout of the schoolhouse, the furniture, access to learning tools and design." - Heather D. and Wendy W.
