ECS Child's Play Preschool specializes in a hands-on learning environment where each child progresses at a unique rate, and has an individual learning style and possesses diverse abilities. Children's learning is based on prior knowledge and experiences that are constructed though play social interactions with other children, and consistent experiences guided by nurturing teachers. ABC Music and Me is also offered as part of the language arts curriculum to help support each child's growth and development.
Migdalia Lambard, Teacher Assistant Spanish
My name is Migdalia Lambard, and I have had the special privilege of working with the Spanish Immersion Program at Education & Community Services for eight years. I firmly believe that all children are capable and inquisitive individuals who should be valued and treated with respect. I also have the strong conviction that when children’s talents, skills and abilities are enhanced developmentally appropriate, they will make a positive impact in our society.
I earned an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education and Applied Science at Paradise Valley Community College in the spring of 2016 and I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education at the University of Ottawa.
I was born and raised in Venezuela and was fortunate to spent time as a high school exchange student in Kansas City. I have been married for 32 years to my husband, who I met while he was an exchange officer for the U.S. Navy in Venezuela. Together as a family, we have lived in Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Mexico before settling in Phoenix in 1999. We are the proud parents of two sons – who are currently serving in the Navy and Marine Corps.
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, dancing, cooking, reading, swimming and exploring nature. My favorite time is being around family and friends. I enjoy the arts of all kinds and particularly enjoy performances by the Phoenix Symphony, Arizona Opera and Ballet Arizona. I love to travel around the USA or internationally.
