Kayla Stockley

Kayla became the owner of Grandma Bea’s on June 1st, 2017. She bought the school because she saw it as an opportunity to expand early intervention to the younger age groups and create an inclusive preschool where every child is given the tools necessary to allow them to learn, grow, and reach their fullest potential. She believes that every child can learn, each of them in their own unique way, and it is her goal to provide the opportunity for that to take place.

She says that by the time they leave the school, each student will have developed important social and life skills. They will have worked on learning about colors, body parts, the environment, and the world around them. Each one will have developed a greater sense of independence while learning how to build relationships and think logically. All of this will come together to provide a smoother transition into kindergarten.
