Our Teachers

Sara Bennett has taught at Creative Preschool  for five years. Her philosophy of early education is to create playful connections between learning standards, personal experiences, and interests. She looks forward to welcoming students and families each year, and helping children develop lasting friendships and self-confidence.

Sara graduated from the University of Washington (Tacoma) in 2011 with a Masters in Education, K-8 and Special Education. Since then, she has shared her love of learning with many of the island’s children through school and play.

Sara lives on a small farm with her family, and enjoys kayaking, camping, gardening, and spending time with friends and family.

As a nonprofit organization, Creative Preschool is run by a board of directors; the board members are volunteer elected positions. Board members are responsible for the leadership, development, budgeting and financial management of the preschool. Responsibilities include service to the school, attendance at approximately six Board meetings a year, and providing ideas and support.

Parents do not participate in the classroom on a regular basis; however, we value the involvement of parents in our program, both through the Board of Directors, special projects, and field trips. We encourage parents to share their own talents and interests whenever possible. The School relies on parent volunteers, community members, and its dedicated teachers to keep the school running.
