I am so happy you’ve taken some time out of your day to learn more about PlayMakers Preschool! I am the program director here, and I can tell you this is the best school I’ve worked for, hands-down, and the philosophy is so appropriate for young children! There are numerous studies showing how play-based learning is the way in which children are inspired to become lifelong learners.
I have been working in early childhood education for 20 years, and I’ve had the pleasure of serving families as both a teacher and administrator. I have my BA in psychology from California State University, Northridge, and my MS in child development. My favorite part of the job of director is both mentoring staff as well as partnering with families to provide education and care specific to their child’s needs. I also really enjoy hosting special events around the school: Grandparents Day, summer picnics, and the Holiday Open House, just to name a few.
I was raised mostly in Santa Clarita Valley, and being part of the small town of Castaic means a lot to my family and me. My husband, Roy, and I are high school sweethearts, and we have two children, Mariah and Cruz. Aside from being passionate about the child development field, I value most my role as a mom and I will always put my family first. In our family free time we’re always out at the lake soaking up the sun and enjoying water sports! Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
