Message from the Executive Director

After 20 years of successfully planning, designing, and leading three amazing schools in two different states, I will be transitioning out my role as the Educational Director and Founder.  I remain committed to the field of Early Childhood Education and will continue to find opportunities to share what I’ve learned to support our youngest learners and teachers.

In my new role at Beyond Basic Learning,I will continue serving as a consultant, teacher, and presenter in the early childhood profession. There is much more we can do together to raise awareness about the opportunities that a quality early childhood program can do for our children and community. Yet, Directors have not been a consistent part of the conversation to affect transformation. Let us engage together and go “beyond the basics.
