Cyndi McCormick’s love for education came from her father, who was a high school math teacher and coach. She pursued an elementary education degree at Purdue University and added her Early Childhood Education units at Orange Coast College. She began teaching preschoolers in 1994 at Aldersgate Children’s Center in Tustin where she worked with 2’s, 3’s, kindergarteners and the after school program. She became Director of Child’s World Preschool in 2001. Her love of nature is showcased throughout the program and she is most proud of the transformation of our outdoor classroom.
She spends her spare time catching up on the lives of her 4 sons, Matthew, Eric, Alex and Anthony. She and her husband, Michael, enjoy spending time outdoors, traveling, hiking, snowboarding and giving back at their church. She is looking forward to grandchildren in the future, hopefully some girls!
Director of operations
Sheila is the heart and soul of our preschool beginning her time here as a teacher in 1977. She took over the role of Assistant Director in 1984 and has touched the lives of multiple staff and families ever since. She received her AA degree in Business from Marymont College and finished her Early Childhood Education at Orange Coast College.
She loves being with her family which include her four children and eight grandchildren. She enjoys walking, gardening, yoga, knitting and even manages a round of golf every now and then. She also enjoys spending time outside in the beautiful California weather.
Our teachers are the backbone of our program. Our staff have multiple years of education and experience in Early Childhood Education and continue to grow in knowledge through continuing educational and professional development opportunities. Teachers meet on weekly basis to continually improve our program. Teachers are trained to assess their students and provide both goal oriented and developmental assessment conferences with parents 3 times a year.
