About Us

Valerie

SBCP Director

Small Beginnings Christian Preschool is a preschool where I can share my love of Jesus with the smallest of God's precious children. I can teach them lessons of love, forgiveness, safety, comfort and compassion that they carry with them throughout their lives after they graduate.

 

I have seen friendships between students and their families that have lasted for years beyond their time at preschool.  It is my hope that the parents also keep the love of Jesus alive in their hearts as well as in their child's heart. I love to see these lasting relationships that have formed from one first interaction at our preschool.

 

Our preschool staff is one of the most loving and caring group of individuals that I have ever worked with. They take the time to listen for understanding to each child and then respond to any triumph or concern individually.   The children are encouraged to try many new things to develop social, emotional, academic and small and large motor skills. We are told that our graduates are some of the most prepared kindergarten students in the many different school districts when they move forward.

 

I believe we are Blessed to Be a Blessing.  I strive for our preschool to be a Blessing to everyone who enters.

I am actually a Small Beginnings graduate and have now come back to be the secretary for Small Beginnnings in September 2019! 

I have worked in Maumee United Methodist Church's nursery for over 7 years now and love working with children and seeing the joy that comes to their face when they learn new things each day.

I love working with young children and being their first introduction to school. My goal is to have them develop a love of learning that will stay with them as they continue on with their education.

3's & 4's Room Teaching Assistant

I work at SBCP because my son, Bryce spent 3 years at Small Beginnings and I witnessed first hand the relationships the children shared with their teachers. His teachers had such a positive impact on him and his outlook of school. He learned so much socially and was extremely prepared for kindergarten. I’m honored to have a small part in setting that foundation for our students and hope I’m giving them same positive impact that Bryce received!

Both of my children have attended Small Beginnings and we saw a huge difference in both of them. They have learned so much during their time here. My son had a great start to Kindergarten after his two years here, and my daughter has taken one continuous leap while enrolled in the 3s class. Joining the staff was an easy decision. Everyone’s care and dedication to the children is unmatched, and I’m lucky to work among these amazing women to help your littles learn and grow!

I am excited to be at Small Beginnings and the privilege of helping students have a great first educational experience. I love being able to help them learn about the love of Jesus and how that can impact their lives as well as introducing the skills needed for school in a fun way through play, hands on learning and one on one interactions. Seeing that spark of excitement or proud smile as they accomplish different skills or learn about a new concept is what makes teaching here such a joy and encourages them to love learning. Watching them form friendships and grow in all sorts of social and academic skills is a great pleasure.

As a mom of a former SBCP graduate who had such a great start, was so prepared for kindergarten and beyond that I am blessed to be able to have a part of that first school experience for other children.
