Lindsey Collins | CCNS Lead Teacher
My name is Lindsey Collins and I am thrilled to be the Lead Teacher at CCNS. I look forward to connecting with and teaching each of your little people.
Before joining CCNS, I was a team teacher at Winfield Montessori school in Falmouth, ME and I received my Bachelor of Arts in English from Franklin & Marshall College.
I genuinely love being around children. The preschool age is so important for learning in all ways – socially, emotionally and academically. I enjoy watching children discover new friends, new skills and new interests. I love seeing each child grow as an individual and as a member of a group.
Some of my favorite things to do at school include singing, laughing, reading stories, doing arts and crafts, being in nature, dancing and giving hugs.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy being with my family. I have lived in Cumberland for many years with my husband and two children. As a family we enjoy boating, skiing, traveling and being with family and friends. When I have a few free minutes, my favorite pastimes are spending time in my flower gardens, cooking and walking.
Parent Teacher Helpers
Each day a parent is scheduled as the Teacher Helper. The working parent schedule is set prior to the school year. The primary goal of the working parent is to assist the teacher in the daily routine of the preschool while maintaining a safe and enjoyable environment for the children.
The most important key to the success of a cooperative program is the enthusiastic involvement of the children’s parents. Parent contributions to the program will enrich all those involved and will be welcomed throughout the year.
Suzanne Brown | CCNS Assistant Teacher
Hi, my name is Suzanne Brown and I’m really excited about becoming a part of the CCNS community as an assistant teacher. I’m originally from New Jersey and have been living in Cumberland with my husband, three daughters and dog for almost 9 years now.
I love working with kids. I have several years experience as a full-time nanny, I’ve been a childcare provider for a local daycare and also had the pleasure of coaching high school softball. I have my Bachelor of Arts from Mount Saint Mary’s University in Communications. I am very excited about getting to know your kiddos and look forward to an amazing year.
While I am not teaching, I love being with my family. We enjoy cooking together, hiking and pretty much playing any sport, but we LOVE basketball.
