Kate Frantz- Teacher

Kate joined the EDS teaching staff in September of 2011. She has 11 years of experience working in a preschool setting and 18 years of volunteer experience working with young children through different organizations such as MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), Girl Scouts, School Volunteer Reading Literacy Programs, and Christian Education at Portsmouth United Methodist Church where she co-chaired the department for 3 years. Kate has completed two levels of training for aligning curriculum with the Rhode Island Early Learning Standards through URI. She views her role in early childhood education as being a guide on an exciting journey of discovery in a setting where the child can touch and explore have all the senses enlivened with art and color, music and texture. The mission is play, and through play, the child develops thoughtfulness, intelligence, and self -confidence. Our play is intentional with the goal being to build a child up, and encourage the child to be the best person they can be!
