Ashley O



My name is Ashley. I am the Director here at Three Harbors Preschool and it has been a dream of mine to open my own early education and care center! I have been a teacher for over 10 years, caring for infants through pre-kindergarten. And now I'm beginning a new chapter as a director. I earned my Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Dean College, my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Wheelock College, and am working toward earning a Master's Degree.

I moved to the Cape with my husband and son about three years ago and have enjoyed the feeling of community within the local towns. I love spending time with my family, whether we're going on adventures or watching TV together, my family is most important to me.

I am very excited to be opening a new center and hope that it will be a wonderful early school experience for many children and their families.


Lead Infant Teacher

Hello.  My name is Lise.  I have been teaching children for 20 years, the last five of which have been in an infant classroom, where my true passion has unfolded.  I enjoy working together with each family to support their infant in all aspects of development.  It brings me pleasure to assist young learners in their discovery of self, ability to communicate socially and exploration of the world around them.

I have a Bachelor’s in Psychology and a Master’s in Education, both of which I obtained at the University of Colorado in Boulder.  I moved to Harwich in 2003, with my husband and two young children, when we accepted the opportunity to manage my parent’s inn in Chatham.  After a ten year adventure as an innkeeper, I returned to the field of early education upon the sale of the inn.

With my children grown and on their own journeys, it is fulfilling for me to nurture and care for infants in the beginning of their potential-filled lives.  I feel fortunate to be part of a team that is committed to providing high quality early education and care in a comfortable, personalized setting.


Infant Teacher

My name is Miss Ashley and I have been in the early education field for over three years now. I have a two year old rescue dog named Buddha and we love to go on adventures together. I am a born and raised Cape Codder and enjoy all things outdoors. Gardening and adventuring  with Buddha are two of my favorite hobbies.


Assistant Teacher

My name is Lauren, I was born and raised in England but spent several years living on Cape Cod when I was younger. I've always loved working with kids and spent many years babysitting and nannying, as well as volunteering in several schools. I have a Masters degree in Modern Liberal Arts and some of my favorite things to do are reading, cooking, being in nature and travelling.

I'm very excited to be a part of the Three Harbors team!


Lead Preschool Teacher

Hello, my name is Pam and I am very excited to be part of Three Harbors Preschool.

My career in education began when my daughter started preschool and I began to see the world through the eyes of a child. Twenty years later, my passion remains as strong as ever. As a Montessori Early Childhood Certified Teacher and an EEC Lead Preschool Teacher, I know that a safe, fun and loving environment fosters wonder where children can explore and discover. It is my goal to nurture each child's unique gifts, and prepare them to be creative, independent, lifelong learners.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, Kyah and our pug Allie, reading, watching movies and seeing live music.


Toddler/Preschool Teacher

My name is Miss Ryan and I've been in childcare for almost ten years. I've lived on Cape Cod my whole life and recently just moved to Harwich. I love working with children and seeing how their minds expand and how they grow over time.  I really enjoy going out on nature walks with my dogs and being outside as much as possible, whether it's climbing or hiking! I love to be creative and work with art inside and outside of the classroom. One of my favorite things to do is read, my favorite children's book is "Harold and the Purple Crayon". I've been described as somewhat of a silly person and enjoy laughter and being "out there". I'm also a huge animal lover! My favorite animal is the sloth.

I am so excited and looking forward to meeting and working with the first class at Three Harbors Preschool!


Assistant Toddler/Preschool Teacher

Hello, my name is Genny. I have always loved working with all ages but especially little ones.

My goal is to gain new experiences and learn from the children and staff!
