Competence and Compassion

The Newcastle Preschool is a labor of love for it’s director and teachers. They continually demonstrate both competence and compassion in educating 3-5 year old children.

Newcastle is owned and directed by its founder, Kathleen Jensen, MA Ed. Kathleen is a highly trained, career educator with over 30 years of experience educating preschoolers, training teachers and counseling parents. She is also a child behavior management expert. The Newcatle School is not just a job, it’s her life’s work. The school works because Kathleen works long and hard to make it so.

Kathleen spends much of her time counselling young moms.

Newcastle parents have direct access to the decision maker for the school, year-round, everyday. Kathleen even provides customers with her personal cell phone number.

If you have a concern or question about your child’s behavior or developmental progress, she can and will help you.

The teaching staff reflects Kathleen’s vision of the role of the preschool in the lives of it’s students. The teachers are compassionate, nurturing, well-trained Early Childhood Educators. They love their students and they are dedicated to making the preschool experience a great one for your child. Newcastle teachers are available to consult with you about your child’s development and experiences at school. The school has mechanisms in place to allow parents and teachers to routinely communicate back and forth.

Kathleen wants parents to be an active part of their child’s preschool experience and she welcomes their participation in daily classroom activities.
