Meet Our Staff
Our dedicated, experienced and highly-educated teachers are what makes CCP so special. Both Kindergarten-readiness classes have one lead teacher with a Master's degree in Education, plus one teaching assistant. Three preschool classes are offered every academic year.

In 2018, Mrs. Puffer became the lead teacher in the Caterpillar Kindergarten-readiness class and the Honey Bee class for three-year-olds. She joined CCP in 2014, and has previously been the teaching assistant in the Caterpillar, Honey Bee, and Monkey classes. Prior to working at CCP, Mrs. Puffer was a teaching assistant working with children from infancy up to the elementary level.
Mrs. Puffer earned a M.S. in Education from the Julius-Maximilians-Universität in Würzburg, Germany. She is amazed to see her students' enthusiasm toward learning every day, making it very rewarding to be a part of their journeys.
