My name is Shawna Curfman and I am the Director of Flanagan’s Preschool, Collegeville. I joined Flanagan’s in August of 2011 after a few years spent in both Florida and North Carolina. My husband and I are PA natives (from Glenside and State College) and we are very excited that our family has returned to our “roots” in PA. I received my undergraduate degree in Child Development from Michigan State University and completed graduate work at Penn State University. I have two daughters who both attend Flanagan’s Preschool, and I could not be any more pleased with the education and nurturing that both girls receive here at the school.
Flanagan’s Preschool is very special and you can feel it immediately when you walk in the front door. We pride ourselves on the family-friendly culture that has been created and our retention of both families and staff can attest to it! The majority of our staff has been with us for over five (5) years and some have been here since we opened our doors in 1997. We have many families who have been here almost since we opened our doors as well! We firmly believe that early education is an integral aspect of children’s well being and needs to serve as a strong foundation for future personal and academic success.
Flanagan’s Preschool prides itself on the high quality education that the children receive here with us. However, we also offer additional programming for children to enhance their educational experiences. Our children (2 and older) participate in music classes to supplement the arts enrichment that they receive in the classroom. Our children (3 and older) participate in a tumbling/fitness course to encourage the overall health and fitness of the children as well. (These two programs are included in the children’s tuition and do not require any additional fees.)
We are also proud to hold our Private Academic License which allows us to host a Private Kindergarten option for our families. Our Private Academic License also requires us to employ teachers with more education and experience that you may find in other programs. Flanagan’s Preschool also offers a high quality before and after school program for our children who attend Perkiomen Valley Schools. The program has built in “homework time” with teacher guidance as well!
I strongly encourage you to contact us and schedule a time to come and visit our school. We always enjoy sharing our school with families and believe that you will choose Flanagan’s Preschool for your child’s early education. We look forward to meeting you soon!
