Lynnette Bole – Director and Owner
Hello, my name is Lynnette Bole. In 1993 I went back to college for my early childhood education degree. Since 1997 I have worked as a preschool teacher in a variety of different preschool settings. These included, 4 years in a non-profit co-op preschool and 3 years in a private school, pre-K through 8th grades.
In 2004, I started a new adventure opening my own school, Sweet Pea Preschool, located on Jennings Ave. in Gladstone. In 2007 I opened my second school, Sweet Pea Preschool #2, located on Harrison St. in Milwaukie. I love working in the early childhood industry. It thrills my heart to see each child’s sense of wonder, discovery and ‘can do’ attitude develop. Over time I realized that many families could not offer their child high quality preschool since most quality preschools are only half day. This is why I decided to pursue certification for my second school. Sweet Pea Preschool #2 an Early Childhood Enrichment Center is a certified center that offers high quality preschool classes with the option of daycare. At both locations we try to work to fit whatever schedule of preschool works best for each individual family.
All staff at both locations are certified child care teachers with many of them having degrees in Education. All teachers are:
*Criminal History Registry
* Child abuse and Neglect classes and are mandatory reporters
* First Aid and Infant Child CPR
* Food handlers card
* Take a minimum of 15 hours a year of continuing early childhood education
For individual information about each teacher please look at the “Teacher Bulletin Boards” located at each school.
