I am Beth Sidel. I have been teaching young children since 1992. While I am licensed to take children of all ages, I have decided to gear my home for preschoolers. You will often times hear me refer to my home as a school. I love that I can offer a school program in a home environment. It gives children the best of both worlds.

In order for us to feel whole and for us to be our best and to give our best, we need to feel accepted, respected, safe, needed and loved for those we are. Everyone should have a chance to build a strong self-esteem and integrity. It creates a positive flow that affects not only the individual himself but everyone around them. This is where I come in! I can help you find the positive flow that you just need to create changes. You as an individual, your business or organization. (Site built 2016)
