Elk Grove

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.

Joycelyn Ward-Richardson

Center Director

I have been with Prestige Preschools for more than three years. Prior to joining the Prestige team I was an Executive Director for a Head Start Program. I began working in the field of Early Childhood Education when I was 14 years old as a student aid for my neighbor's Preschool. I feel that the most rewarding part of working with children is when they learn something new. That is a proud accomplishment for all!

"I love to see the twinkle in a young child's eyes when they are learning something new as everything is so interesting to them. And of course, I love all the hugs and smiles!!!" 

Krista Whitehead

Assistant Center Director

I received my BA in Child Development with a concentration in Preschool Administration from CSU, Sacramento in 2006. I taught at a childcare center in Roseville for over three years before joining the Prestige Preschool family. I have been with Prestige Preschools for more than four years, three and-a-half in a management position. I am married with one son, and look forward to a larger family in the near future! I have always loved working with children of all ages.

"My favorite moment is when a child is able to address me by my name. It is a special moment in their growth and development and I feel honored to be a part of this step!"
