Shanel Washington

Welcome to Room 33!

Meet Ms. Washington

Hello, my name is Shanel Washington. I am the Preschool teacher in Room 33. I am so excited to be a part of the Alta Vista CDC family. I have been working with young children for over 9 years. I have a Bachelor Arts Degree in Child and Adolescent Development.When I am not working with children or attending school, I enjoy reading books, singing, cooking, traveling, and spending time with my family.

I love working with young children. What I enjoy the most is helping young children grow to achieve various milestones in their development.  I believe in creating a fun stimulating environment that allows children to explore, ask questions, and problem- solve. Children are our future and it my goal to help children reach their full potential.

Current Assignments


 ■CDC classes end promptly at 6:00 PM. If a parent is going to be late, we ask that you notify staff of your situation immediately and will be subject to a late fee. Our policy states that the cost is $10 dollars in a check for the first 15 minutes late and an additional $1 for every minute thereafter.

 ■Anyone that is not listed on your emergency contact list will not be permitted to pick up your child. We are usually familiar with the caregivers of our students. If we are unfamiliar with someone we will ask for a verification of ID.

 ■If you know another person will be picking up your child ahead of time, you must fill out a Temporary Pick-Up Form, indicating who will be getting your child, the date and your signature allowing this person to pick up your child. ID will be checked prior to the release of any student.

 ■If there is an emergency and someone other than yourself needs to pick-up your child, you should call the center immediately and notify the teacher or the supervisor as to who will be arriving. Verbal verification of the request is required from a parent. The person picking up cannot be another minor and they must present a California ID.
