Our Staff

Our staff is your child’s greatest advocate and one of the many reasons your child will love coming to our school. Our staff has degrees in early childhood education, education, psychology and nursing, as well as advanced degrees in educational psychology/special education; all of which are a foundation for us to teach your young child. But one of the important things that makes our preschool different is we love to teach, love to guide and always want your child to know God loves them.
