Meet our Preschool Educators
Christie Adams, School Director
I have been a Director with our company since 1982. I enjoy being the leader of our school and working alongside our great assistant director. We have many dedicated teachers with lots of longevity that have spent their time loving, caring, and educating children in our community.
Our school has been a huge part of this community and I have gotten to see many children grow up that now bring their own children to our center. It is very rewarding to be able to take care of several generations within the same family.
I have been married to my wonderful husband since 1992 and I have two grown sons and two awesome grandsons. In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and my dogs. My hobby is traveling and spending time with friends.
