Reasons We Have Opened a Preschool

In July of 2013 I gave birth to my first child, a daughter named Samantha.   Before that, I was an elementary school teacher. I taught kindergarten and 1st grade for 7 years in the Sacramento City Unified School District. After having Sam, I decided to continue my love of teaching and young children by opening a preschool out of my home.  I am so excited to bring my expertise and curriculum/materials that I have developed and collected over the years to YOUR preschool-aged child. Because my own children are here (we had our second, a boy, in 2016!), you know that this preschool will be safe and nurturing…because class sizes will be small, you know your child will get our full attention and have access to all the materials…and because I taught kindergarten for many years, I know what your child needs to learn to be successful when they get there!
