School History

Joan Bourriague’s Preschool was established in 1966 by Joan Bourriague, a local community member and kindergarten teacher, with a commitment to quality early childhood education and kindergarten readiness.

Susan Cretekos, a teacher who worked with Ms. Bourriague for many years, took over the school in 1992.
