The Staff of KinderArt
 
Patty Mott, Director
Patty holds an AS and BS in Business Management, graduating with high honors from The Community College of RI and Western Governors University. She is currently completing the requirements for Certification in Early Childhood Education. 

Patty has been with KinderArt since 2006 and is committed to providing the best learning environment for KinderArt students. We are the introduction, the first taste of school that children get.  If we do our job right, they are going to fall in love with school. And that's what we do every day: help children gain important skills and fall in love with learning.

Previously, Patty attended Johns Hopkins University, majoring in Opera Performance and spent the better part of twenty years at The Newport Playhouse and Cabaret Restaurant managing the box office and appearing on both the main stage and hosting the cabaret. The mother of two boys (Pierce and Andrew), Patty started at KinderArt after seeing what a difference the school made to her elder son's progress in speech development.


Stephanie Grant, Education Coordinator
Stephanie came to KinderArt in 2008. She is Certified in Early Childhood Education and graduated from RIC with a double major in Elementary Education and Psychology.  She has a passion for teaching preschool-aged children and has been a preschool teacher since 2001.

“I am committed to teaching because I like to watch children progress.  I especially like that moment of discovery when a child learns to do something new, when a huge smile of accomplishment appears on a child’s face. In that instant, we know that their enthusiasm for learning will grow.  At KinderArt, we continually foster a warm and welcoming zone of discovery for children.  Every day at KinderArt is a new experience of learning through play.”

Stephanie is the mother of two children Kaitlyn and Ryan, who both have attended KinderArt.
 
Our Faculty

Our faculty is excited about your child’s growth. We blend our expertise in innovative teaching, with a true passion for nurturing children.

Each class is taught by qualified, caring professionals who are dedicated to fostering your child's natural curiosity and joy in learning.

Our adjunct faculty teaches the specialized parts of our curriculum such as karate, yoga, art and creative movement.

We create our curriculum to facilitate your child’s exploration and discovery in each subject area. We offer diverse modalities so your child can learn in his or her own way. Learning happens through play and through engaging your child’s own excitement about a topic.

Our faculty prepares our curriculum, including all subject areas of the Rhode Island Early Learning and Development Standards: physical health and motor development, social and emotional development, language development and communication, cognitive development, literacy, mathematics, science and creativity.

Our dedication is to each child as a whole person and to every family as well. When you walk in the door at KinderArt, you’ll discover that our staff is creative and nurturing, not only with students, but with entire families. It’s a natural part of life here at KinderArt, listening to and connecting with families, and sharing the joy and excitement that comes from watching children grow.
