Emphasis is placed on pre-academic and school readiness skills such as listening and communicating, reading and number concepts, and playing and working together.

Teacher, Afton Diehl
I graduated with my Elementary Education Degree in December of 2013 from Kansas State University. I took a long term sub position in a Preschool in Manhattan right after I graduated and that definitely sparked my interest in early childhood. Then later I took a Preschool teaching position in Chapman and absolutely love it. This is my second year teaching Preschool at Wee Irish. I love the district, my colleagues, my students and their families. I’m very thankful for this opportunity and to be a part of this district. I love to learn new things. As an educator, we are here to do what’s best for the children.
