Meet the Turrell Staff

Infants to kindergarteners, our students are surrounded with extraordinary care.

Teachers with a long history.

Your child will be nurtured and educated by caring teachers who have extraordinary experience and who have been with the Turrell Center for many years, providing a continuity of care that is so important for children. Our teachers stay at the Turrell Center because they are valued, appreciated and given the tools they need to teach effectively. Come meet them now!

Classrooms with reach.

We select teachers with a passion to inspire, stimulate, and engage your children to learn, imagine, and develop. We want your children to have the foundation and skills they need to excel as they embark on the opportunities faced beyond Turrell’s walls. Let’s meet the staff who guide Turrell classrooms, at every age-level, into a lifelong experience:

Welcome to our infant room.

Your baby will be loved, nurtured and cared for in an environment that fosters growth and development.

Welcome to Preschool.

Your preschooler will enjoy a hands on approach to learning and engage in age appropriate curriculum based activities.

Welcome to Kindergarten.

Come take a look at our state certified full day kindergarten program. Ms. Ali prepares each child academically and emotionally for their elementary school years.
