Andrea McAnally - Lead Teacher
Andrea studied early childhood education at Clark College and taught in their Child and Family Studies program for 8 years. Following her time at Clark College, Andrea spent 7 years teaching at WSUV in their Child Development Program.
Andrea is passionate about children and their families and believes that building relationships with them sets the foundation for early learning. Additionally, she believes that young children learn through play, through their senses and through hands-on experiences. She loves providing them with opportunities for these things and with an environment which allows children to pursue their areas of interest; to find out “why?” or “how?” or “what if?” and to be inspired to try new activities and explore new ideas with confidence and curiosity.
Andrea enjoys spending time with her family and being outdoors, taking advantage of all that the beautiful Pacific Northwest has to offer.
