Marlene Allen, Director

I have been working with young children for the last 29 years. It is all I have every wanted to do! I am passionate about providing an environment for children and families that is loving, caring, and allows children to learn and grow in a fun and meaningful way that has a lasting impact. My husband and I have two teenage daughters and we love living in Willow Glen with our two spunky dogs!  On a weekend you'll find me spending time with my family or traveling.


Pattie Zylka, 4's Teacher

I've been teaching preschool for 26 years and I love the energy of the classroom!  Hands on learning is my favorite way for children to experience the world around them.  I am a California native and my husband and I have three grown children and six grandkids.  I love a good latte, day projects, and teaching!

We have more amazing teachers that we'll be adding to our website soon!
