Classes & Teachers

At The Little Schoolhouse we are a close-knit team. We're proud of our long-term teaching tenure. Our combined teaching years at The Little Schoolhouse add up to more than 70 years of teaching. This stability and continuity is a great advantage, generating a feeling of safety and competence. Each year we strive to improve teaching practices and our collective wisdom.


We believe it takes a village to raise a child. Our preschool is indeed a little village. Children and their parents over the years remember their teachers and experiences from their preschool days at TLS. These enduring relationships are testament to the integrity and quality of the education offered at our preschool.
