Hello Friends!

Nicole and KariThank-you so much for checking out our page! We are thrilled to see God’s work and his blessings truly come together to make our dream of The Garden Preschool a reality! We have been praying and working on this “dream” for over a year now and we are so encouraged by all of the support and resources that have been provided! If you are on this page because you know us personally, thank-You! for your love! If you are here and we don’t know you yet, we are so excited to share our dream with you! For those who don’t know us yet, here is a short introduction to who we are and what we will be doing over the next year:

We are two friends; two Mommies; two teachers; two daughters of God who have been called to open a preschool in Bothell, Washington. We worked together for 3 years in the Lake Washington School District teaching 3rd grade and have an extreme passion for everything education. Our names are Kari and Nicole and we are both expecting little ones early in 2013! Nicole has a 2 year old son, Logan and this will be Kari’s first! See more about us in the “Meet Our Teachers” section of our website!

We have been planning, learning, and researching for over a year and are ready to launch in September 2013! We do not yet have a location because we are planning to rent a facility in downtown Bothell and cannot do that until June. We have a vision for our preschool and will be prayerfully waiting for the perfect space to become available. (In the meantime, if you know of any great resources, we will gladly accept suggestions! ) The Garden and all of the learning that transpires will focus on 3 areas: building a love for learning, a love for God, and a love for self. To see more about our philosophies check out the “About Us” section of our website.

2013 is going to be a great year and we can’t wait to see where our dream takes us and The Garden Preschool! As a part of our vision we want to share some great “parenting preschoolers” resources with you so that we can help you make the most of your precious time with your toddler or preschooler. We will be posting a few times per week starting in January.

We are also in the very early stages of enrollment for September. I know that it is hard to pick the perfect preschool without touring the location, but we would love to get your information if you are even slightly interested in our programs. Check out our website and contact us!

Thanks again for your support; we will see you all in the New Year!
