Head of School's Welcome

Welcome to Little Seedlings Preschool where students are supported in building excellence in character and academics while in a happy and nurturing environment. We are preparing children for Kindergarten success and beyond while building a highly competitive preschool. Our goal is to become the number one choice for parents all around.

My name is Ms. Teresa Nguyen and I am the director as well as the teacher for our Little Seedlings. A little about me, I was born and raised in Seattle, WA and currently live in Des Moines with my beautiful loving family. This will be my 6th year teaching early education & I am excited to make this my best year yet!​

In June of 2015, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Integrated Studies with an Arts (Music, Art, Theatre) Concentration for Education from Seattle Pacific University. I am also certified in early childhood education with 2 years of experience as Assistant Director at the Northgate Early Learning Center. With my education and experience along with your help, I hope to instill the love for learning into each and every one of my students preparing them for kindergarten success and beyond.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of Little Seedlings Preschool is to help families by giving children ages 2.5-5 quality education, instilling moral values and providing a safe, encouraging, and fun environment in which to grow. We expect to maintain open communication with students and parents at all times while working with the families and communities of each student in order to further their development.

At our school, we believe in having a prepared play-based learning environment that allows children to explore and flourish in a program catered to their developmental stage. 

Through play, kids learn how to interact with others and develop critical lifelong skills. They are instilled with the love for learning, giving them the tool for achieving academic success.

Daily schedules are developed with the following in mind:

  • Outdoor time, both structured and unstructured, every day.

  • At least two large blocks of time for child-directed learning.

And include:

  • Morning and Afternoon Group Time

  • Small-Group Activities

  • Morning and afternoon child-directed learning in learning centers

  • Outdoor play and activities
