Preschool holds open house

NEW SCOTLAND — The Voorheesville Community Preschool, located in the First United Methodist Church at 68 Maple Ave. in Voorheesville, will have an open house on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Classes begin in September and run through the end of May. The preschool follows the Voorheesville School District’s calendar.

Long-time preschool teacher Theresa Springer recently resigned to pursue a different direction in her career. Renee Crisafulli, long-time Voorheesville resident, was available to take over the reins in January. Renee has an early-childhood education degree from Maria College and was head teacher for the Guilderland Community Center youth program. She then decided to open her own nursery school, Just Ducky, in Guilderland, which she ran for 10 years.
