Field Mice

Welcome Field Mice Parents!

My name is Kerry Zullo-Matheson and I will be your child’s Lead Teacher in the Field Mice classroom this year. Like you, I am both a parent and have a career! I have two daughters named Bella (17) and Scarlett (14), and I have been married 20 years to my wonderful husband, Brian. I began my adult career working with 401 (k) plans and mutual funds, but after having children of my own, I decided to make a change. I went back to school at St. Edward’s University, earned my bachelor’s degree in Art and English, added up all my teaching classes and hours from when I had been an Art Education major much earlier in life, and went in search of a teaching job at an amazing school. This will be my 8th year at Child’s Day!

I am so excited for the new school year! There will be many fun, active, educational things happening this year. Our class will go on field trips, explore the world around us through science, learn fun and creative art techniques and share new experiences with literacy and math. The Field Mice team’s main social and emotional goals to work on throughout the year are building confidence, independence, and conflict resolution.

My team and I will always strive to provide an environment where your children are able to express their feelings appropriately, feel supported and cared for, build upon their skill set, and feel confident enough to take risks in a safe and encouraging space.

It is a privilege to be able to spend the year with your child. Positive parent involvement and participation are key to both quality childcare and emotionally healthy children. I appreciate that many of you have busy schedules and heavy workloads, but rest assured – there are many ways you can contribute to our Field Mice class. Please consider the following:

  • Inviting us to your workplace for a field trip
  • Reading a book to your child and a few friends at drop off time in the morning
  • Supervising on field trips
  • Having lunch with your child in class
  • Visiting us to share a favorite family activity or tradition

These are just a few ideas on ways to help out this year, so feel free to suggest other ways in which you can get involved. You can reach me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
