I am very excited to have the opportunity to lead Monarch Preschool College Park and foster a life long love of learning in our students as we focus on the whole child. Our spaces, curriculum and teachers will all be active, engaged and helping children apply their learning to real world issues, getting them ready for school and life beyond.
