NEW WILMINGTON, PA – Westminster College recently restructured its Psychology Preschool Lab.

Melissa Moore, with more than 10 years of experience in early childhood education, was promoted to head teacher. Moore, who earned undergraduate degrees in elementary education and early childhood education from Clarion Univeristy of Pennsylvania, has served as a teacher at the preschool for the past five years.

Jennifer Matyasovsky was hired as a new classroom teacher for the 2018-2019 academic year. She earned undergraduate degrees in both education and sociology from Westminster College, and has worked in education since 1999.

“I am very excited about this coming year and working with such a talented staff,” said Dr. Mandy Medvin, director of the preschool and professor of psychology “We look forward to continuing to provide a high quality, developmentally appropriate curriculum to children at our school. Our goal is to engage with parents to foster a warm, enriching environment where children can develop, create and learn.”

The Westminster College Preschool Lab is a multi-purpose facility that serves both Westminster and the community. Designed by early childhood experts, the laboratory school is committed to providing an excellent learning experience for the area’s children. The program is enhanced by the use of innovative curriculum, well-trained staff, developmentally appropriate equipment, and individual attention. It is accredited by the NAEYC’s National Academy of Early Childhood Programs, and licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
