Prestige Preschool Academy of Claremont


Prestige Preschool Academy has been in the community for many years. We have a great reputation and that is the result of the amazing care our dedicated and compassionate teachers provide every day.

All of our teachers receive ongoing training in early education because we ensure our children are learning with the most up-to-date methods.

We have separate classrooms and playgrounds for each age group, and an awesome room called Prestige Plaza that enhances children’s creativity and role-playing.

And because we know security is so important, we are proud to have a biometrics security system that allows access to our school. Safety is paramount to us at Prestige.

I began working for Prestige in 2006 and in that year I helped open the Claremont center as the Center Director. Before joining the Prestige team, I worked for the KinderCare Learning Centers for more than 20 years. While there, I was a teacher, Assistant Director, Center Director and an Area Manager. I have always enjoyed sports and working with youth teams. I completed my Early Education courses at Chaffey College in Claremont. During that time I was a volleyball and softball coach and Assistant to the PE staff at Montclair High School. I also had the opportunity to coach a Women’s National Travel Softball Team capturing 2nd Place in the National Tournament in 1996, followed by Coaching at CSUSB.

In my spare time I enjoy concerts and attending major athletic events—especially Angels’ games. Being the youngest of 12 children, I love spending time with my large family. I also make sure I have plenty of time for my two puppies!

“I love having the opportunity to be a part of a child’s early learning years and being able to make a difference. I truly enjoy being able to say “good morning” to the children every day and listening to their amazing stories and adventures.”

I have been working in child care for more than 20 years. I first found my love of this field by volunteering, and enjoyed it so much that I continued my education. From a volunteer, I worked my way up to becoming a Center Director with KinderCare. I joined the Prestige team in 2006 and helped to open this center. I love the children and families at Prestige Claremont!

“I enjoy spending my free time with my great family and friends.”
