Ashley O

Owner/Director

Hello!

My name is Ashley. I am the Owner/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 five 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.

Lise

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.

Lynn

Lead Preschool Teacher

Hello,

My name is Lynn. I have been working in Early Education for 30 years. Most of my time was spent in a Preschool classroom. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Stonehill College and a Master of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education from Wheelock College.

I came to Cape Cod a littler over 30 years ago. I love the scenic beauty of Cape Cod from the beaches to the cranberry bogs. I dabble in art. One of my goals is to try to draw some of the scenic places here on Cape. I also enjoy reading, art, music, and spending time with my husband and cats.

Hayley

Preschool Teacher

Hi, I'm Miss Hayley! I am from Barnstable and have taught children in multiple classrooms on Cape Cod. After graduating high school, I attended Plymouth State University to continue my journey in child psychology and early education.

My favorite place to be is in the kitchen baking. It brings me peace when I can create something on my own. Waffles and cheesecake are my favorite foods! In the future I hope to be instructing cooking classes for the youth along with running my own business. I also love being outside and taking pictures of my dog. My dog Eli is my bestfriend!

Being creative is always key when teaching young minds. I strive to make everyone feel welcomed, valued, and appreciated in my classroom. I really enjoy seeing children develop life skills that can be applied inside and outside of the classroom.

I am very much looking forward to meeting and growing with the children and teachers at Three Harbors Preschool!

Ryan

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!
