Preschool Start up

When my son was little I gathered some of my mom friends and we had our very own coop preschool in my living room. It was great! I loved teaching and my son had a great time. As he got a little older it was time for him to have someone else as a teacher and our weekly preschool stopped meeting.

Fast forward now Little Miss is getting big enough to enjoy the interactions of other babies it’s time to start another preschool. However this time it will be a business. I just finished the arduous task of becoming licensed and now it is time to launch…..

Classes taught by a K-8 Certified teacher



Bring your little one for a morning of play, songs, art and socializing. Conveniently located at the top of Queen Anne. Situated in our family’s grand craftsman home, my classes provide that comforting feeling of home that little ones need in their first preschool experience. Class sizes are small and I personally teach all classes myself. This provides each child with individualized attention as they develop socially, emotionally, and physically. Caregivers are always welcome to stay, but morning preschool classes are drop-off so that you have time to run errands, schedule a doctor appointment or simply go to the grocery store on your own!
