Pink Class

Welcome to our preschool class.   My name is Jan Platto and I have been teaching the Pink Class for nine years.  I have a degree in Early Childhood Development and attended Lewis and Clark Community College and Sangamon State University.  I am married and have two children.   Mrs. Angie Crane assists me in teaching our class full of fun and energetic four year old children.  Mrs. Crane is also married and has three children.  We feel that being parents ourselves helps us to be better teachers.  We realize that every child is someone’s whole world just like our children are to us.  We pride ourselves on treating our students in the way that we would want our children treated.

We provide developmentally appropriate hands-on activities.   Our classroom teaching methods encourage social, emotional, academic as well as physical growth.  We concentrate on development of the child as an individual and employ many teaching strategies within our class to help each student learn to their fullest potential.

We work daily to provide activities that will explore Kindergarten readiness skills through everyday play, as well as introducing the children to age appropriate individual work.  If you have any questions about our class or our curriculum please send an email to me at  Be sure and check back often to see our activities throughout the year!
