Michael runs the aftercare program and works as support staff. He is known lovingly by staff and community as the Nap Master due to his gift for lulling restless nappers into dreams and creating a gentle, relaxing atmosphere. Michael writes poems and stories for children (and grownups) and has produced a spontaneous musical album cassette tape (“The Pompatus Lives”) and a collage book titled “From Puddletown to Universes Beyond” for (and with) the children of Puddletown. He finds kinship in the Montessori Method and with the teachers at Puddletown school. Michael is currently developing a press and production company called Cloudbound which aims to bring imaginative learning, music, poems and storytelling to children of all ages.
Due to COVID-19 Puddletown School is currently operating an emergency child care center. Our elementary classes will be distance learning until our county meets the metrics defined by Governor Brown. Our Department of Education blueprint for reentry is here. Our protocols for Covid-19 in our preschool and elementary program can be found here. For information regarding enrollment for children ages 3-11 for the 20/21 school year and beyond, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
