New Preschool Director

We are delighted to announce that Jen Stoner has been selected to be director of the preschool.  Jen has been a teacher with us for the past 10 years.  Before teaching, her children came to preschool here and she was a leader in the steering committee during that time.  She has a complete understanding of all the great things that are happening here at CHUMP and is ideally suited to lead our school.
