Heather Lincourt – Lead Teacher

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