My name is Kathy Gay. After caring for our young sons and providing child care to "little learners" in our home for over 10 years. I was hired by the district in 1985; it was at the beginning of the second year of a very new program for all parents in Missouri- Parents as Teachers! I have a passion for learning, growing, and partnering with parents and their young children especially in the journey from prenatal - kindergarten! As an experienced parent educator, my goal is to model and share best practices in parenting as strong families build stronger communities. Parents are their child's first, best and most important teacher!
