My primary goal as the Director of Newport is to provide parents with loving, sensitive, creative teachers to enhance your child's development on a daily basis. It is a privilege to serve you as a partner in the growth and education of your children. Your thoughts, viewpoints and concerns are vital to facilitating your family's needs. Thus my door is always open.
