Mrs. Denise Gruetzmacher: Preschool Director
Hello, I am Denise Gruetzmacher. For over 20 years I have worked with toddlers, preschool and kindergarten children In Montessori, Reggio Emilia and Waldorf schools. I begin my tenth year at Little Saints Preschool as the Program Director and the 3 to 4 year old classroom educator. I enjoy collaborating with parents and colleagues, as well as guiding early childhood curriculum. Through the years, I have discovered that children bring a variety of learning styles, backgrounds and languages into my classrooms. Each year, I am excited to “get to know” every child, offer individual learning opportunities and watch as my classroom develops into a vibrant, interesting, creative and unique community of young children. Although I hold a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and Montessori Certification, the daily interaction and communication with young children has been my “true” education. I am also happy to be your child’s Atrium educator, which is guided by Montessori inspired Catechesis of the Good Shepherd lessons. For me, watching your children grow and develop is magical!
