Early Childhood

Lynne Gatz - Director and Lead Teacher

I believe strongly in a preschool education that enhances a child’s life in the present and beyond. I have a passion for teaching young children and guiding them using Biblical principles. I am qualified with a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education, along with being a certified Michigan elementary school teacher, with a ZS endorsement. I possess ten years of teaching experience primarily at the early childhood level.

As a second career teacher, I have previously worked in the corporate world as an executive secretary. I acquired my Bachelor’s degree in business administration from Western Michigan University. Although I enjoyed the structure and organization of the business world, I grew burned out and followed a “calling” to become a teacher.
