Casper church preschool hopes they can bring kids back in the fall
The large classroom at Saint Mark’s preschool is empty for the summer. This classroom has been empty since they closed mid-March due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
Mandy McFee, the director, said she hopes they can bring kids back into the classroom when fall rolls around.
“Because we are under DFS we are under child care restrictions but they are not as strict as the school district,” McFee said.
She added they can have 10 to 20 kids in a room which is the size of their classes.
Also, they can create their own curriculum, but teachers have to attend training provided by the state.
McFee said since they are in a church setting, they have a weekly Christian based lesson.
“In general it’s teaching the kids about God and God’s love and that he loves them and how we can extend that to others,” McFee said.
She added that the kids are the best part about her job and hope to see them in the fall.
