Rock Creek preschool welcomes first students

ROCK CREEK — Play, Learn, and Grow Preschool welcomed their very first students Monday morning. The school for three, four, and five-year-olds is located in Rock Creek Elementary School.

There are two classes every day from Monday through Thursday taught by Carrie Lyerly, and assisted by her classroom aide, Daisy Asmus.

The classes are from 9:15 to 11:45 a.m. and 12:45 to 3:15 p.m. Lyerly said there is plenty of room for more students in each class.

A full class, she said, would have eight special needs students and eight “typical” students. Both the morning and afternoon classes currently have six special needs students and two typical students enrolled, said Lyerly.

She said that the first day went rather smoothly. “As far as the kids separating from parents, I don’t think it could have been any better,” she said.

Asmus agreed, saying, “It was a wonderful morning.” Lyerly said she was happy about her new classroom. “We have been very fortunate to get such a big, beautiful room,” she said. She said she’s never before had a classroom with built-in lockers for students.

This is the third year Lyerly and Asmus have worked together, said Lyerly. The preschool costs $3 per day, and a snack is provided.
