Best Beginnings Preschool announced that Sally Smith will retire from her position as director of Best Beginnings Preschool in Redmond in June.
Smith has been a part of the early childhood education community in our area for over 40 years. After graduating from the University of Washington, her journey working with young children began teaching at the Boyer Children’s Clinic and Munchkins Preschool. She also worked as a Parent Educator through Lake Washington Technical Institute at Finn Hill Co-Op Preschool.
Smith has served as preschool director at Best Beginnings since 1996, touching the lives of thousands of children and their families in the Redmond and Woodinville areas. Her responsibilities included overseeing the staff of 15 teachers and 165 students while providing a warm and nurturing environment where children can learn, play and grow.
Smith’s years of experience in early childhood education brought insight, compassion and understanding to all she worked with including children, parents and colleagues. This milestone will give Smith the opportunity to spend more time doing the things she loves; traveling, reading and spending time with her family including her grandchildren.
Best Beginnings Preschool invites friends, alumni and all who know and love Sally to join us for a retirement open house celebration honoring her on April 21 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Holy Cross Episcopal Church, 11526 162nd Ave. NE, Redmond.
