Scheffers retires from Federated preschool

After 25 years employed as a teacher and director at the Federated Church of Sycamore Preschool, Jan Scheffers, director for 15 years, has retired as of July 1.

Her dedication and caring for the children and families of the community will long be remembered.

Healthy and safe peer relationships are modeled where children learn independence, cooperation and positive social manners. Children’s confidence and curiosity is encouraged and kindergarten readiness is developed.
