Our Staff

Erin and Shannon, owners and teachers, are friends who have known each other since meeting in their kindergarten classroom in 1980. As a result of their thirteen years of Millbrae education and life-long friendship, a deep sense of loyalty, integrity and commitment to education developed. Erin teaches the younger Preschool classroom.  Shannon teaches in the Pre-Kindergarten classroom. Their goal is to create an Early Childhood Education program in their hometown community that blends the importance of family values with a strong early childhood educational experience.
