Missy Koeppel – Director

 

 My name is Missy Koeppel. My husband Matt and I live in Hopedale with our 2 children Dillon(13) and MaKayla(8).  I have been working for Rogy’s for over 11 years now. I enjoy working with children and their families as they grow, develop, and learn.

Tina Wyman- Assistant Director

My name is Tina Wyman and I have a son (19) and a step-daughter (23).  I’m very involved with my family.  I have a 3 year old Grandson and a granddaughter on the way!! I graduated with an associates in Early Childhood.  I have been in child care for 21 years.  I’ve been with Rogy’s for 11 years.  I love working with children and watching them grow.  When a child accomplishes something, the smile of their face is priceless. Every child holds a special spot in my life.

About Us:

We strive to teach children not only academically, but socially and emotionally as well.
As an approach to recognize positive behavior and reduce or eliminate challenging behaviors, Rogy’s implements a program to enhance social and emotional development and promote school readiness. The approach was developed by Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning or CSEFEL and uses a pyramid model to address the social and emotional needs of children. We at Rogy’s like to refer to this approach as PBS. PBS focuses on being proactive in preventing challenging behaviors by building positive relationships with our children and families, creating a supportive environment for our children, and finally, using specific strategies in teaching social and emotional development. With PBS in place, the amount of time addressing challenging behaviors has been reduced and in turn has allowed our staff to focus on the positive behaviors and to support all areas of development and learning in all children.

We work really hard to teach PBS strategies to our children and love the results that we get!  It is an amazing program to help the children really blossom emotionally and learn to deal with different emotions and different situations.  It also helps the teachers to focus one on one with children, especially during their difficult times.  We want the children to learn through every experience to ensure that they are constantly growing.  One way we help our children learn is through helping them understand what is going to happen that day.  Most people appreciate some routine and consitency to their day, so our classrooms each have a .  As we progress through our days, we want the children to focus on the positive as much as possible, so our teachers work hard to constantly develop different strategies to reassure the children that they are doing the right thing.  For example, when they clean up, they can fill up the  and earn a classroom party!  With PBS, the children always want to be caught being good.  .  Our wonderful teachers love to reinforce positive behavior, so they pick a child, who has really shown growth emotionally,  and name them the .  Each child in the classroom gets an opportunity to show off their family, friends, likes, hobbies and more.  A huge part of Rogy’s is knowing the children as individuals.  It helps us to meet their needs specifically.  We celebrate the uniqueness of each child that comes through our doors.  When meeting the emotional needs of each child, we want to be sure that they have plenty of space to use to relax when they need a moment to themselves.  We call this area our “Thought Spot”.        We always offer posters, books, activities and comfy rugs and pillows to help the children understand their feelings and learn to control different types of emotions.  Our teachers find it helpful to have some Super Heros and other popular characters around to be reminders to the children throughout their day as to what the classroom rules and expectations are.      .  Our ultimate goal is to help the children grow and to learn !  PBS is a huge part of our day.  If you have any questions regarding our program, please don’t hesitate to ask.
