Talia has combined her life experiences along with her degree in education to turn her vision of opening a preschool into a reality.
Talia loves the excitement that children bring to preschool as they explore new ideas and learn to express themselves. She provides a nurturing environment where each child can develop their social/emotional skills, learn how to be a good friend, and be Kindergarten ready.
Preschool is a magical time and Talia is fortunate to work with kids and their families as they discover and grow.
Donna has been with Beaumont Preschool since 2017. She brings with her over ten years of experience as a ballet, jazz, and creative movement teacher. Donna was also the original preschool teacher at Little Lark Preschool in SE Portland, where she worked for three years, developing curriculum and working with parents to create a wonderful preschool experience. Her degree is in Business and Human Resource Management, but she has found she much prefers working with children. She has continued to further her knowledge in the field of education by attending seminars and workshops every year.
Donna’s favorite part of the day is facilitating music and movement. She sings and plays instruments with preschoolers, as they explore rhythm and musicality. As they dance and express themselves with movement, children increase balance, coordination, special awareness, flexibility, memory and self-confidence. They have a ton of fun and there is usually a fair amount of giggling.
Donna loves collaborating and working with Talia at her wonderful school!
