Welcome to Preschool!

Hello and welcome to the Hayes Center Preschool class for 2016-2017!  I am so glad that you and your child will be a part of our wonderful learning process this year!  I am very excited to get to know and work with each child and family.  First, let me start by introducing myself.  My name is Andrea Neal and I am new to Hayes Center.  I grew up in North Platte, Nebraska.  While growing up I was involved with 4-H, Community Connections Crew, marching band, jazz band, orchestra, color guard, piano lessons, speech and debate, drama, and more.  I attended Chadron State College where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.  While attending Chadron, I was able to work at the nationally accredited Child Development Center with children ranging from 2-5 years old.  After graduating college in December 2015, I moved to Lincoln, Nebraska.  While in Lincoln, I worked at a nationally accredited Early Learning Facility inside the Federal Building.  The primary age group that I worked with at this facility was 2 year old, but I also was able to work with children spanning birth-5 years of age.  I moved to Hayes Center in early July and am very excited to be a part of this wonderful community!  In my spare time I enjoy scrapbooking, reading, and crocheting.  I look forward to having a wonderful, fun filled, adventure packed year with all of you!
