The Playschool Mission + Our Teachers
For over fifty years, Roseburg Playschool Cooperative has provided exceptional programs for preschool-aged children.
Our success over the years with our Roseburg Preschool is a reflection of the commitment and involvement of generations of parents, each seeking to assure that their child’s introduction to education is as filled with joy and wonder as possible.
As a member of this cooperative family, we welcome your involvement.
The decisions and guidelines that govern our school are made by parents serving on our Board of Directors and by each parent individually.
The goal of Roseburg Playschool Co-op is to develop people who think imaginatively, who have original ideas, and who welcome opportunities to put their ideas into action. We begin during the early preschool years to encourage a variety of experiences that will foster original thinking and action. All children have creative ability and can find pleasure and satisfaction through creative activities if they have proper guidance and encouragement.
Playschool furnishes equipment and an atmosphere that is appropriate to a child’s development. Materials and activities are selected so that each child can develop his/her individuality and imagination. Provided with tools and the time, children learn to initiate their own exploration and discovery. They learn to use the art and play equipment responsibly and are required to clean up after themselves. Through playing together they learn to accept compromises essential to human interaction and relationships.
We realize there are other options when you’re looking at preschools in Roseburg and Douglas County, and we’re proud to welcome you and dozens of other families into Playschool this year!
– Miss Heather
Miss Heather – For well over a decade, Heather Goin has brought incredible energy, enthusiasm, and genuine love for children to Playschool. Her teaching philosophy is that “the true work of childhood is play,” and that belief is what brought her to Playschool.
Her primary objective is to ensure that every child that comes through our school has a fun and memorable first experience that will get them excited about their future education. She loves children, the outdoors, horses, and being involved in Search and Rescue . Heather is a Roseburg native and former Playschool mom. She is married with two grown children (both Playschool graduates!) and a menagerie of pets.
Miss Kayla – Miss Kayla joined our classroom in 2013 and brought with her a passion for seeing children learn and grow. She loves being a part of the first steps in learning, so she is a perfect fit for our TOT and Preschool classes. Her teaching philosophy is that children learn best through play and adventure so joining our team made perfect sense for her and her family. Miss Kayla is married and has two children. Her daughter has been a part of our school since TOT class and will be graduating from the Pre-K class this year. She also has a toddler son that is eager to join! She enjoys the outdoors, activities with her children, and traveling.
Miss Anna – Miss Anna is the assistant teacher for the preschool and pre-k classes and has years of experience in early childhood development programs. Anna Orozco began her career with young children almost two decades ago. She joined Playschool in 2013. Ana truly feels working with children is her passion. Her greatest strength is being able to connect with children of all ages. She believes children succeed more when they enjoy what they are doing. Ana is a firm believer that children “learn through play”. In her free time she loves spending time with her family and enjoys the outdoors. Ana was born in Mexico and moved to the U.S. when she was 12 years old. She is married and is the mother of two teenage sons.
