Shaun and Sara Brentrup, opened Children's Garden Preschool in 2005. Shaun has Bachelor of Science degrees in Elementary Education and Physical Education. Sara has Associate of the Arts and Bachelor of the Arts degrees in Early Childhood Education. Both teachers are certified in infant/child CPR and First Aid. The Brentrup's are experienced curriculum writers and preschool developers.
Shaun and Sara are the only staff at Children's Garden Preschool. There are approved back-up staff that could be brought in if there was ever a need for Sara or Shaun to be out of the classroom. Occasionally there are college students and practicum teachers that may join our classes for a day or for a few weeks.
To keep up with the latest trends and research in Early Childhood Education, the teachers are members of the National Association for the Education of Young Children and attend NAEYC Early Childhood Conferences for continuing education.
Sara and Shaun have 5 children, ages 7-15. Their family enjoys traveling, camping, and going to hockey games.
