My name is Kelsey Cook. From a young age my passion has been school and teaching. I am a certified teacher with a degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. I spent 6 years in public school teaching third grade and kindergarten and spending time in the classroom fueled my passion for teaching. I decided to leave the classroom when I had my first son, however, I couldn't stay away from teaching too long and ended up starting a preschool out of my home. I have spent the last four years teaching preschool and creating my own curriculum. My hope is to provide all parents with the opportunity to create an environment of learning in their home and help start their children on a path to academic success.
I have two boys and a little girl, Owen (4), Harvey (2), and Goldie (our sweet newborn!). I love being able to teach and still be able to spend majority of time with my kids. I have a passion for early childhood education and know how important this time is with your child.
After spending time teaching in third grade, then kindergarten and finally in preschool I have been able to see the effect a strong academic foundation has on a child's learning. In the last few months I have seen how hard it is for parents to find what to do with their kids and how to make sure they don't fall behind in school. I want parents to feel confident teaching their own kids, so I created the Miss Kelsey preschool and kindergarten homeschool curriculum. We are living in a time full of unknowns, and that is hard on parents and children. As a parent you know what your child needs and you know how they learn best. My curriculum provides you with a guide to keep your child learning and thriving while being safe at home with you. I am a lover of all things school, and the idea of kids missing out on the valuable preschool or kindergarten years breaks my heart. My intention was to create a curriculum that gives your child the preschool and kindergarten experience in your home. I wanted to include the extra things that make school so fun-hands on activities, crafts, songs, and more.
Thank you for being here with me! I hope you love what you find!
