Executive Director, GP co-owner
is our passionate Executive Director. With extensive experience in early childhood education, she leads our program with dedication and compassion. From leading song circles to snuggling toddlers, she creates a nurturing environment while overseeing the big picture. Her dedication as co-owner ensures that our program thrives and provides the best early year experience for your children.
I love being able to be around children while they get to experience and learn new things. They are so excited to learn and I love that I get to help them in that process. I am always happy to go to work knowing that I will get to play, laugh and learn with my students each day. I believe that children learn best when they are given the opportunity to explore subjects through hands on experience in a nurturing environment.
Programming Director, HW co-owner
brings passion and dedication to our program as both a director and a co-owner. Leading our Hollywood location, she tirelessly runs from one place to another, ensuring smooth operations and supporting classrooms. With her expertise, she trains our teachers to deliver exceptional educational experiences that reflect our values and philosophy. Her commitment to excellence shines through in everything she does.
I feel so lucky that I get to come to work every day and hang out with 100 unique, hilarious, and thoughtful little humans. I love the conversations - whether toddler age or 5, children always have the most honest and authentic language. We stay busy by incorporating our natural world inside our classroom, by using nature to play, to draw, to paint and we are constantly inspired by our beautiful PNW surroundings. My favorite days at school include dance parties, messy process art, and lots of reading circles!
Administrative Officer, GP director
holds a deep appreciation for our teachers and goes above and beyond to support them in their professional growth. Alongside her role in overseeing the day-to-day operations, Mercedes serves as our program administrator, ensuring compliance with licensing regulations and maintaining smooth administrative processes. Her attention to detail make her an invaluable asset to our team and the nurturing environment we strive to create.
I love the community I work in because kids are unassuming, easily excited, and laugh at my jokes! I’ve always had two major facets to my personality: humor and music. I get to incorporate and encourage both things in every single working day. I love having the opportunity to share something new with my class, whether it;s a song, a joke, or a fact about Mars.
Operations Coordinator, HW & GP
takes care of everything behind the scenes. From coordinating the Kinder and camp programs, to managing art supplies and organizing snacks and even building furniture, she truly does it all. Molly's versatility and can-do attitude ensure that our program runs smoothly and efficiently. Her efforts contribute immensely to creating a nurturing and well-equipped learning environment for our children.
I am constantly inspired by the unapologetic authenticity of children, their boundless curiosity, and their ability to embrace their unique interests and questions. I believe in fostering an environment where kids can be themselves and explore their own little fascinations.I find great joy in working across different school environments, and I love to see the kids light up with excitement when they see me.
Allison Morton, Founder
I love working with young children because they are so eager to learn and are excited by all the things around them. They are also great teachers; I love coming in each morning knowing that I too will be learning something new. I look forward to each school year as together we create, examine, study, explore, reflect, and laugh. I enjoy the potential of each day, from diving into an experiential art project to revisiting a favorite book, it is sure to be fun and it is sure to be busy. I opened Small Wonders School in our little Fremont house all those years ago along with my husband Nick. I am very lucky to be witness to the amazing work of this dedicated team.
