A Letter From Our Pre-K Director

Dear Families and Friends,

I am truly humbled to have the opportunity to serve as the Network Pre-K Director. It is a role that I hold with great enthusiasm and a deep sense of responsibility. I have been in early education for 15 years in many different capacities. One of my most proud opportunities was serving as the Founding Site Director of Movement Freedom Pre-K. As the Network Pre-K Director, I am committed to fostering a nurturing and inclusive environment where every child can thrive. I believe that each child is unique, with their own set of strengths and abilities. My aim is to ensure that our Pre-Kindergarten program embraces and celebrates this diversity, providing a tailored and enriching educational journey for each and every child. I also want to emphasize the importance of parental involvement in our Pre-Kindergarten program. Your participation and partnership play a vital role in your child’s educational journey. I am dedicated to fostering strong connections with our families, listening to your feedback, and working together to create an exceptional experience for our scholars. I am confident that, with our collective efforts, we will create an environment where our Pre-Kindergarten scholars can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve as the Network Pre-K Director, and I look forward to partnering with the community as we prepare a new generation of leaders through our extraordinary Pre-K Program.

With Gratitude,
Erica Polk
Network Pre-K Director, Movement Schools

Amazing Teachers

We hand-pick teachers to bring out the best in your child. They fill each classroom with instructional expertise, character, and love. Our teachers shine and are the heart of our school.
