Heather Linnemann and Laura Pattrin share a laugh during a one-on-one learning session. Thirteen children currently attend Little Wonders Preschool, and Linnemann says she spends a portion of each day working individually with each child. "Some kids are older than the others, so I work on everything from recognizing letters and numbers, and the older kids work on writing," she says. "The goal is to teach them all the stuff to get them ready for kindergarten."
