Raelene McLean and her familly - Preschool teacher at Annette's Preschool in Sherwood Park AB

Hello!!  I am Raelene McLean and I am so excited to be a part of Annette’s preschool.  I am blessed with the opportunity to teach the 3 year olds!

For the past 9 years I have spent my days as a stay at home mom to my 3 kids!  Before having a family I highly enjoyed being a teacher to children of all ages!  I have worked one on one with children with special needs along with teaching preschool, and also having the opportunity to teach Kindergarten. I have had the opportunity to work in Annette’s Preschool with some of my students for a couple years and also had two of my own children attend her preschool! I am very familiar with Annette, her teaching philosophy and her program and am so thrilled she has asked me to be a part of it!

I so look forward to meeting your child.  I know we will like each other and I want your child to learn and grow.  I will provide your child with lots of different ways to learn and explore.  The classroom is designed for the children and children learn their best through play.  The classroom is designed for play.  I know your child is incredibly capable and I will support your child’s independence and celebrate their achievements.  In our classroom we are all teachers and we are all learners!  We are allowed to make mistakes.  We try . We try again and we try together.  In our classroom we dance, we sing, we observe, we create, we pretend, we wiggle, we celebrate, we explore and we ask questions.  We take deep breaths and we have fun! My goal for each child is to feel confident, to believe in themselves, and to gain a love for learning.
