    Assistant Director

    Hello, my name is Ms. Lowery. I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. While not at work, I attended UMKC to complete my bachelors in Elementary Education. I have 6 years of experience working in childcare. Working as both a lead teacher for an Early Preschool classroom and being a private tutor/ nanny. I love getting to help my students grow and finding new ways of adapting ideas to better their learning. I currently live in Downtown Kansas City with my boyfriend Jon and our two cats, Arwen and Zuko. We are die-hard Sporting Kansas City fans and enjoy taking any chance we can to watch them play. We are also both members of large families. So, we love getting together and having game nights as often as possible.

    I look forward to meeting all the new families and helping each child feel loved when they walk in the door!
