A Note From our Founder

Dear families,

Thank you for considering Galileo Preschool as you explore schools for your child. I love meeting prospective families to hear their hopes and dreams for their children. Education has always been a passion of mine, and I take pride in staying on top of the latest research and innovation in the Early Childhood Education Field.

My path to Galileo Preschool has been long and winding, and now I am finally living my dream. Through my coursework at Stanford University and working with my advisor, Dr. Claude Goldenberg, I came up with the vision for Galileo Preschool. I have always been impressed with how much and how quickly children learn when given engaging hands-on activities, and I wanted to create an education environment where children find joy in learning and discovery. Thus, Galileo Preschool was born! I spent almost a year searching for the perfect location for the school, and when I first walked into the beautiful building on Blossom Hill Road, I knew in my heart that this was the place where my vision would come to life.

Fast forward to today, and Galileo Preschool is thriving. Our school offers a more intimate environment compared to our peers and our curriculum is rich and balanced. Although my educational background is concentrated in math and science, I believe that the Arts are very important, especially as a child's brain is developing.

I am delighted that you are interested in Galileo Preschool and look forward to getting to know your family. I encourage you and your children to come by for a visit to experience the incredible learning and joy that our school has to offer.

Together we can achieve the extraordinary,

Mrs. Burns
