Pre-K Fun Now Leads to Handwriting Skills Later

Little House Pre-K students enjoy playing with playdough, stringing beads, and drawing and writing on chalkboards. These are among many playful activities that help our students develop strong fine-motor skills, which will benefit them when it’s time to begin handwriting!

Meet the School Committee

Dan Heider

Dan Heider has been a part of the PMFS community for over 12 years.  He and his family joined PMFS when his oldest child Bennett started Pre-K. Dan has served PMFS in multiple roles over the years, including PTO and the Strategic Planning Committee, and he is now Clerk of School Committee.  Dan believes strongly in the vision of PMFS and its ability to foster independence, growth, community, and academic success among its students.

Dan grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota and made his way east to Swarthmore College, where he started attending the local Quaker Meeting. He is now a member of Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting and has served the meeting as treasurer and on many committees.

Dan works at Bristol Myers Squibb in Worldwide Pricing. He and his wife Rebecca live in Chestnut Hill with their children Bennett ( grade 10), Graham (grade 7) and Alice (grade 5). In his rare spare time he enjoys seeing friends and running.
