Our Teachers

Our loving and caring teachers have Early Childhood Education backgrounds and degrees, as well as experience with young children. We also have a continuing education program for our teachers, so that they stay current with developments in our field and provide a source of inspiration and fellowship with other educators.



Alice has a degree in Early Childhood and Family Studies from the University of Washington. She brings experience from many different types of Child Development Centers. She started as a student volunteer at Sand Point Child Development Center and came back in the summer of 2019. SPCDC holds a special place in her heart and is dedicated to making it the best it can be through research, constant collaboration and challenging the norms.


Young Pre-K Teacher (3 — 4 year olds)

Shae has worked in the Early Childhood field for over 3 years and has experience working with children from toddler through school-age. She developed a love for working with children from raising her younger brothers and having a large family. Originally from Washington, she enjoys spending quality time with her daughter and exploring the outdoors. She loves developing meaningful relationships with the children and families and is very community oriented.


Pre-K Teacher (4 — 5 year olds)

Originally from Hawaii, Patti stuck around Washington after receiving her BS in Natural Science from Puget Sound University. She worked as a Camp Naturalist at YMCA Camp Seymour where she taught environmental education classes to students K-6th grade. Her love of the outdoors took her to New York to continue her career in the outdoor education field however she missed the Puget Sound and the mountain ranges so she came back to WA with the intention of redirecting her career goals towards becoming a formal educator for Early Childhood Education and eventually finding an interdisciplinary balance between traditional classroom programs and experiential field class programs. In her free time, Patti loves going on hikes, spending time in or on the water, ziplining, and hula dancing.
