Experience and education are of upmost importance when choosing teachers to educate our youngest learners.  All of our teachers have degrees in education and many years of experience working with children both in and out of the classroom setting.

Our director, Hilary Graves, received her undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education at the University of Central Missouri, She earned her Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Missouri Columbia. She has taught in the Lee's Summit, Harrisonville and Independence school districts as a kindergarten teacher and as a Parent Educator.

We have a returning cast of teachers for the 2020-2021 school year which includes Miss Angela, Miss Dianna, Miss Lesley and Miss Brandi.
