Providing Loving, Quality Child Care & Preschool Services in the Bethesda Area for Twenty Five Years

About the Administration

Executive Director: Carrie Meyer

Our Executive Director, Carrie Meyer, has over 20 years of experience working in childcare.  After spending 7 years as a child care teacher working with every age group from infants to school age children, Carrie was promoted to the assistant director of the School in 1996 and took over as Executive Director in 2005.  Carrie oversaw the expansion and transition of the School into its new facilities.  She has 3 children who all attended the School, and has lived in the local area all of her life.

Operations Director: Sandra Acklin

Our Operations Director, Sandra Acklin, has been working at the School for over 20 years.  She began with us in 1993 as a toddler teacher, and has worked with several other age groups as well.  In 2001, she became the lead teacher for the two-year-old classroom.  She quickly became a parent favorite, as her philosophy that "they are all Kings and Queens" was easily apparent.  In 2008, she was promoted to the role of Operations Director for the School. 

Program Director: Erin Slagle

Our Program Director, Erin Slagle, was a teacher with the School for over 3 years and  served as the curriculum coordinator for all of our classrooms.  Prior to that, she was an assistant director at another school.  As a teacher, she had great success improving the parent-school connection by starting a daily blog so that parents had a better idea of what was happening each day in the classroom.  Other teachers picked this up and the blogs became a popular enhancement of the classrooms.  Erin recently completed her Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education with a focus on Program Administration.  

School President: Shaun Rose

Overseeing the Directors and general operation of the School is our President, Shaun Rose.  Shaun is a former litigator who has also worked in politics and the education field.  He taught elementary and middle school for 3 years, and has a Masters Degree in Elementary Education as well as a law degree.  He has been an integral part of several local political campaigns on the state and federal levels.  As a parent of two children at the School, Shaun volunteered hundreds of hours and became President of the School's Board of Directors.  In that role, Shaun led the effort to save our School when it was forced to leave its previous facility.  Within a period of just 10 months, Shaun negotiated a lease for the new facility, obtained the needed financing, and oversaw the construction of our beautiful new School.  After that, Shaun took on a permanent, part time role as the School President to provide continuous professional and managerial support in helping shape the School into one of the best and most sought after child care and preschool providers in this area.
