Faculty and Staff

Our teachers and assistants bring outstanding qualifications and talents to Yorkminster Presbyterian Preschool. All lead teachers hold a bachelor’s degree, many in early childhood education, child development or a related field. Several of our faculty hold advanced degrees. Being a learning community is a high priority at Yorkminster Presbyterian Preschool. Our teachers participate in professional development each school year and are eager to incorporate early childhood research into their daily classroom activities. Each class includes one lead teacher and one assistant teacher.



The preschool is led by Tia Leonard.
