Welcome Kathy High New Director
We are excited to announce that we have hired a new Director for Caughlin Club Kidz, who will oversee all of our children’s programs including the preschool, before and after school care, drop in and summer and other camps. Her name is Kathleen (Kathy) High and she comes to us highly qualified with a wide range of experience and education. Kathy has her Masters in Elementary Education from UNR, Bachelors in Business Administration Management from UNLV and her Nevada Elementary Education Teaching License. She has previously been a Director at two large accredited preschools where she received excellent training, taught 1st thru 3rd grades in elementary schools in the Washoe County School District and been a lead teacher for preschool classes. In these roles she was able to make a positive difference in the lives of the children she taught. She also enjoys community outreach and has served in various volunteer capacities with Reno Association for the Education of Young Children, Renown Children’s Hospital, Washoe County School District Council on Family Engagement, Habitat for Humanity and the Nevada Food Bank. Above all, as we met and talked with Kathy, we were impressed with her passion for childhood development and education. She said she was drawn to this field even after obtaining her business degree. She emphasized that the early years are so critical for the social, physical and mental development of children. She feels that not a moment should be wasted when your child is in our care. In fact, even play time can and should be utilized for learning and of course, for fun. She has a vision for a comprehensive school curriculum that is age appropriate and will develop and teach science, social studies, cognitive skills, math, technology, literature, social skills, motor skills, creative art, music and movement. After we showed her the facility she was very excited about the possibilities of additional kids programming and curriculum enhancement with all the space and amenities the Club offers with a gym, pool, tennis courts, and fitness and dance studios. No other preschool has so much to work with and most can’t offer the camp experiences, and before and after school care for children beyond pre-school age.
We recognize that you trust us with your child each day and we want to have the best learning, nurturing, healthy, safe, fun and developmental environment possible. We are confident in Kathy and the leadership and direction she will bring. We look forward to the positive improvements and enhancements she will bring to the program. Please join with us in welcoming her to the Caughlin Club Kidz Family.
Sincerely, Caughlin Club Kidz Management Team
