Ms. Claudine

Director / Lead Teacher

I am the founder and director of Growing Seeds Preschool. I oversee all programs and the preschool’s daily operations. I started this school after completing my master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from De Paul University. This is my lifelong passion and I’m glad I’m sharing this with your family!
