Turlock Parent Participation Nursery school - a unique place to learn
TNS Staff
Turlock Nursery School has a wonderful, caring and experienced staff.

This will be the 5th year for  teacher Jaime Dunn. She is a TNS alumni parent and has been involved with the school since 1998. She will be Director for the 2017-2018 school year and assist with updates and transitions.


Lori Fox joined our teaching team in the fall of 2015 and has been such a gift to our program. Lori has 20 years of teaching experience with preschool age children.


Our afternoon teacher and afternoon supervisor, Mary Dalton has been with Turlock Nursery School for 20 years. Her passion for early childhood development shows in her work and the children benefit from the smaller class size and afternoon activities.                                           


Our retired director, Julie Johnson, was  with the school for over 34 years. She will be retiring June of 2017 and we will transition to a new director (Jaime Dunn) for the 2017-18 school year. She will still be a valuable source for our school.

Board Members: Turlock Nursery School  has a dedicated board made up of parent volunteers. This elected board meets monthly to manage the day to day functions of the school and to make sure we are providing a rich learning environment that is in accordance to our mission statement.                                                               Current Board Members 2017-2018

Parents: Because we are a parent participation nursery school, parents are also involved in the day to day operations. These include: assisting the teachers in class, classroom management, cleaning and student safety. As a TNS parent you are part of our school day and an important part in the connection between home and school.
