Director's Welcome Message

  • Nicole Baitx Kennedy I am thrilled to join the team at Pleasant View/OVPP Preschool. I have served in education for over 30 years, specializing in Expanded Learning and Early Learning Programs. Early Learning is a wonderful opportunity to support your children and teach them the skills they will need to transition to one of our outstanding elementary schools. Since 2015, the Ocean View School District has been my home. I first served as the Child Care Supervisor and now as the Director of Child Development Programs. In this newly expanded and renamed position, I will oversee our District’s preschool programs. I am especially excited to meet and work with you, the families of Pleasant View/OVPP Preschool.

    The majority of my experience has been in Expanded Learning. I worked in Orange Unified School District in the Centers for Afterschool Recreation, Enrichment, and Safety Program (CARES) as Child Care Lead Teacher and Program Curriculum Planner. I enjoyed spending five years in the classroom as an Early Learning Educator. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in child development from Ashford University, an Associate’s Degree in Early Learning/Child Development, a Child Development Program Director Permit with Commission on Teacher Credentialing, and am a certified trainer in CPR/First Aid through the American Red Cross.

    Expanding and enhancing Early Learning and building a seamless transition between preschool and elementary school are a few of my goals. I look forward to serving the families of our Preschools in the coming years!
