Heidi Jenkins Andrews: Preschool Director


BA, Lyndon State College

Heidi Jenkins Andrews, grew up in Danville and earned her Bachelor of Science In Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education at Lyndon State College. She has fourteen years of early childhood education with a focus on Preschool. 

When not working, you can find her taking walks with her 6 year old son William and her dog Tanda, gardening, cooking and spending time with her family and friends.

When entering Heidi's preschool classroom you will see children exploring the eight "Reggio Emilia" inspired centers that she has designed for discovery. This curriculum focuses on group and project work with parent involvement while the physical classroom environment acts as the third teacher.

Heidi has a personal relationship with each student and is able to discover their individual interests for appropriate curriculum development. She then integrated these themes into the subject areas.

When asked how she feels about joining our school, she replied, “I feel so honored to be here, and I’m extremely excited to collaborate with the outstanding staff and to work with children and families of The Riverside School Community. This is an amazing school, and I’m excited to develop an enriching environment for three, four, and five year old children.”
