Dear WCDS Parents,
As Willistown Country Day School celebrates 40 years of Montessori educational excellence, I would like to thank you for your belief and continuous support of our school. So many students come to us because of parents like you, who help spread the good news about Montessori education and WCDS. Fostering a love of work, concentration, self discipline and a sense of joyful accomplishment are a few of the benefits our unique program provides. We pride ourselves with an outstanding, eager and devoted staff to help guide your child through a universal education, “the Cosmic Education”.
I am pleased to announce our 2012-2013 school year staff members:
Assisting Miss Susan at the Derham Building is Miss Meredith Eyerly. Meredith hold’s a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Education along with a degree in Art. Miss Meredith has 7 years of experience working with preschool age children. Her enthusiasm and thirst for the Montessori philosophy is most evident upon meeting. Miss Taryn, from the West Goshen Building, will be joining Susan and Meredith on Monday and Friday afternoons. This accomplished and talented group of educators proves to offer an inspiring and fun-filled educational journey for each child!
Returning for his 21st year in the classroom, Mr. Chris Macomber, will be the senior member of our West Goshen staff. He is anxious to share his knowledge of the Montessori classroom and dedication to the WCDS program with our new team and fellow teachers. Joining Mr. Chris will be Senor Jocksan and Miss Joann Falciani. Joann comes to us with experience and high recommendations from Montessori Children’s House of Valley Forge and Gladwyn Montessori. She holds a Montessori Certification from Chestnut Hill College and a Master’s in Elementary Education from Cabrini College. Senor Jocksan, our well known Spanish Teacher, will serve as an aid to Mr. Chris and Miss Joann every morning while pursuing his Montessori degree for the preschool level. What a dynamic trio for our WCDS students!
This year’s toddler class will continue to be guided by the loving Montessorian, Miss Diane Wetherill. Alongside Miss Diane, we welcome Miss Donna DiDomenico. Miss Donna holds a degree in Early Childhood Education from West Chester University and has a vast experience with preschool age children. Your child will be inspired through the great patience and caring guidance that make this classroom a happy, nurturing learning environment.
Our Elementary building continues with its outstanding, seasoned team of educators. Miss Caryl and Madame Nadine will be upstairs with our kindergarten class (Form A), while Miss Jen and Miss Subba share instruction with our Elementary students in the downstairs classroom (Form B). Specials will continue as follows: Miss Rachel will head up the children’s Fine Art Program; Senor Jocksan will be conducting the Spanish Language Arts Classes at all levels and Phys Ed.; Madame Nadine remains instructor for the French curriculum for all schools; Mr. Nouse continues his Music and Children’s Theater Arts Program and Miss Subba will be leading our Elementary Science Program. I would personally like to extend my gratitude and best wishes to our entire staff for their continued dedication and tireless devotion to the Willistown community as they return for another year.
Mr. Jim Nouse, Principal

WE miss EVERYTHING about Willistown. My children’s experience at Willistown not only prepared them academically and socially, but it ignited a certain curiosity about the world and a love of learning which, in my opinion, sets them apart from many of their peers. Most importantly, I am struck by the tremendous confidence they now have, which I also attribute to HOW they learned in that environment. Simply put, there is NOTHING as COMPLETE as a Montessori education, and children who are fortunate enough to enjoy a Willistown Montessori education will reap the benefits for the rest of their lives. The MONTESSORI WAY is a “GAME CHANGER” in the game of LIFE !! Thank you, Willistown … we hope to be able to attend the holiday concert and catch a few minutes of that special MONTESSORI SPIRIT that we miss SO MUCH!”
