Darcy valby -                  Toddler Room Teacher               

Darcy, husband, Doug and two children are SCPENS Alumni. Darcy has worked as an early interventionist for the past 15 years, serving families in our community with children from birth to three. She enjoys observing and working with children and parents as they learn from one another and develop new skills. She feels the SCPENS classrooms are where all are welcome, where the "work"of children is play and that the process is more important than the product.
