Elementary & Preschool Supplies List


The Eagles Nest Preschool was founded in 2006.  It is a self sustaining program, which operates following the school schedule on a nine-month basis.  The preschool years are very inquisitive, and exciting time for you and your child.  At Eagle's Nest Preschool, we believe that every child is an individual and our staff is devoted to bringing out the best in each child.

Children at Eagle's Nest Preschool are placed in a classroom with comparable aged children.  We have two classrooms to accommodate these children.  The classrooms have a lead teacher and an aide to work with the children in the room.

We believe that all children learn at their own pace, so activities are designed to develop a variety of skill levels.Our goal is to allow preschoolers the opportunity to explore the world around them while preparing them for the structure of a Kindergarten classroom.


Educational Program

Our educational program at Eagle's Nest utilizes the Funshine Express Curriculum.  Our curriculum includes weekly themes and units, as well as instruction on reading readiness, math, social studies, language arts, science and nature.  Children are also introduced to letters, number concepts, colors, shapes, sensory activities, physically fun activities, language concepts and calendar.  These core area concepts are introduced at this time to help with mastery at the kindergarten level.  Daily lessons are planned with both the individual child and the whole group in mind.  The classroom is equipped with many different center-based learning activities, of which are a huge component of the Funshine Express Curriculum and are used regularly in the classroom.

Eagle's Nest Staff

Mrs. Emma Evers, Director:  I am the Director/Lead Teacher of the Eagle's Nest Preschool.  I am a 1998 Cole R-V graduate, and graduated from Lincoln University in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a minor in Psychology.  I have taught preschool aged children since 2000 and became an administrator in 2004.

I like teaching this stage in a child's life because I get the chance to be a part of so many of their firsts.  Tasks like tying their shoes, writing their name, or putting a puzzle together may seem like small accomplishments, but to the child and myself it's huge! Nothing is more rewarding than hearing a child say "I did it!"

Mrs. Amber Reed, Aide:  I began as a substitute for the Eagle's nest Preschool in the 2011/2012 school year.  I am now currently the teacher's aid in the Rainbow Room for Mrs. Evers.  The first year of school is a time when many milestones are still being crossed.  It is very rewarding to me to be apart in helping them learn and grow. 

"While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about."  ~ Angela Schwindt.

Mrs. Theresa Koetting:  I have been employed by the Cole R-V school district since 2006 inwhich I worked in the high school cafeteria.  In 2013 I moved to the preschool and became an aide for Mrs. Evers in the Amazon room.  I am a 1994 graduate of Cole R-V school.
