Nancy, Owner-Director

Nancy graduated from Oregon State University majoring in Microbiology, which is why we joke that Early Years is the "cleanest school around".  She left her field in biotechnology after having children of her own and in 2001 opened the first of her three successful certified family childcare centers in the Lake Oswego area. When she isn't engaged in a comical conversation with a kiddo you can find her on a tennis court.


Charrisse, Owner-Director

Charrisse attended University of Oregon before moving back to the area.  She was a member of multiple education based boards in the Portland Metro area before deciding to dive into the preschool world. She previously owned and operated a small preschool in the area. Charrisse will always greet you with a smiling face, ready to chat about your child, your day and/or her love of baseball.
