Polly's Preschool at Half-Pint Farm, LLC
Farm fun in the summer sunshine!
Cindy Bjerklie, the director and head teacher at Polly’s Preschool loves the spontaneous and joyful nature of children and she enjoys working with her goats, chickens, rabbits, dogs, ducks and kitty cat. She’s never been happier than she’s been since Half-Pint Farm opened its barn doors. When she’s not teaching, you’ll find her reading, knitting, gardening, brushing the goats or trimming the Angora bunnies.
Cindy is a mother, step-mother, a grandmother, a teacher and now—a farmer! She has recently completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Granite State College and she is enrolled in a Master’s degree program at Plymouth State University focusing on Library and Media Studies. In addition to animal care and training, she has a special place in her heart for children’s literature and teaching emergent literacy skills.
She has worked with children for many years, including seven years with Camp Fire Boys and Girls, teaching in several preschools in California, working as a classroom volunteer, a library aide, and a nanny.
Cindy also teaches college courses at the Community College of Vermont and NHTI, Concord's Community College.
