Welcome 2018-2019 School Year
Welcome to SEAS Preschool!
My name is Elizabeth Brake, and this is the beginning of my 23rd year in education, all teaching children under the age of 8. My husband and I have 3 children, one at SEAS, and two at Bishop Carroll. Our morning aide is Lisa Waymire, and our 3's and PM aide is Joan Walters. They are both Christ-filled women who will love your children! We are a team, and will work hard to make your child's first school experience a joyful one!
We have 3 classes of Preschool/Pre-K. The Tuesday/Thursday 3 year old class is color-coded yellow, Monday/Wednesday/Friday AM class is red, and the Monday-Friday PM class is blue.
