Our Tadpoles Classroom

The children do art work, learn new vocabulary, and play with puzzles and other manipulative toys.  We also continue their faith based curriculum where they go to chapel and say daily prayer.  We read bible stories, clap to music.  We also explore outside and go for buggy rides.  The children in Tadpoles grow and learn in a creative, loving and academic environment. This classroom is centered learning where each child will be able to make choices where to play.  It is our job to encourage those choices, teach them how to enjoy and play appropriately.

The Tadpoles Teachers

Anita Baraw

My name is Anita Baraw, I moved to Margate, FL almost six years ago from Connecticut. I was born and raised in CT. As an adult I moved around the country and in 1994 moved back to my hometown in CT.

For several years I worked in a middle school in my hometown. I worked with 5th-8th graders. I enjoyed the children very much, but after several years I decided I wanted to work with younger children.

I helped and organized the opening of an after-school program at my church. I really enjoy new ventures. It was quite successful. While working at our after school program I received a call from another Lutheran Church close to home. They were building and opening a new preschool/daycare and asked if I was interested. I then worked there for 11 years in the infant room. I loved every minute of it! I left when I decided to move to Florida. My only child (son) who is now 33, travels all over the country for work and most of the rest of my family is gone! So I decided to get out of the “Ice & Snow” and move close to my mom.

I came to work at Christ Church Preschool a week after moving here. I love the children and all the new friends I have made. In my spare time I love working/decorating my condo and going to the pool with a good book. I’m also a member of Christ Church.
