My name is Fiona Wielhouwer and this will be my 10th year working at Pearson Nursery school as the supervisor. After both my children attended Pearson I knew it would be a fantastic place to work one day. I’m so happy that my career path landed me back in this community school. With the many changes in the child care field over the last number of years I am happy to guide and support the Pearson educators in the wonderful learning that is happening in our school. The wonderful part of a cooperative preschool is connecting with all the families and building a great community.
