​​​​​​​               Director’s Message 

I love children and enjoy watching them grow and learn. We are part of your village and are here to help your children grow and learn to love school. I know it can be scary and exciting to send your child to school for the first time and to have another “mommy figure” take care of them. We are here to support you and your family as best we can.

I was raised attending FUMC and started volunteering in the Children’s Sunday school rooms at an early age. Before working at FUMC I worked as a nanny and also owned my own home daycare. 

I started as a preschool assistant teacher at FUMC in 2002 and became the Director of the PDO in 2008. Children have always been my passion, especially the little bitties. I received my Child Development Associate Credentials in 2007. 

Both of my children attended FUMC Preschool and love coming back to visit especially since some of their teachers are still here! My husband Patrick and I are both Fort Worth natives and have been married since 1994.

Thank you for your interest in our school and let me know if I can help in any way.

My door is always open ;-) 


We are fortunate to have a wonderful group of teachers, who make each child feel loved. Our parents tell us that they love our warm, friendly environment.  We work in partnership with our families to help each child be his or her best.
