Our Staff

Our staff has a passion for early childhood education that allows us to love our job! We look forward to partnering with parents to create a positive first-year preschool experience that allows a child to grow and develop at their own rate. We believe in providing a rich learning environment that encourages children to grow physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and to gain an understanding of the importance of community and family.  We want our preschoolers to know that learning is fun!
