Heather Lincourt – Lead Teacher
Heather moved to Rochester from Crystal Beach, Ontario Canada, when she married her husband three years ago. Together they have six grown children. Her youngest just graduated from Fairport High school. She and her husband feel blessed to have 4 grandchildren living close so that they are able to spend most weekends with them. Heather is so excited to be a part of Perinton Nursery School and looks forward to sharing in your child’s education. She has over 30 years of extensive experience working in various positions with young children and has dedicated her life to Early Childhood Education. She owned and operated seven child care centers in Toronto area and after 14 years, she sold her centers to return to what she loves the most; teaching children. Heather taught Kindergarten in Crystal Beach Canada for 4 years before moving to Rochester. While working for the Niagara District Board of Education she received extensive training in an emergent curriculum (Reggio based). She is energetic, enthusiastic and very passionate about teaching. Heather enjoys providing opportunities for children to learn and grow in a play based environment. She looks forward to an exciting year filled with the wonders of learning with your children!
