David C. Abbott Early Learning Center A Rainbow of Stars!

Please Create A Marquee


This is my 15th year working in the Marlboro Township School District and my 14th year at the David C. Abbott Early Learning Center.  I hold a Master's Degree in Communication Disorders from William Paterson University.  In addition, I hold a Graduate Certificate in Behavioral Intervention in Autism, from the University of Massachusetts. Before coming to work in Marlboro, I worked full time in Early Intervention, traveling all over Middlesex and Monmouth counties to work with children ages birth through three. 


Indoor Obstacle Course

Push aside some furniture, and practice gross motor skills without breaking anything! Set out a laundry basket and use balled up socks to practice throwing and accuracy. Tape down some yarn or string for a makeshift balance beam. Do moves in place, like running, jumping and hopping. Add yoga moves, set up a tunnel...there are an infinite number of possibilities here.  And work on language skills by adding directions.... "First, walk on the balance beam" and so on....
