Meg Hintz


Meg is passionate about children meeting Jesus, learning to love and serve those around them and being prepared to live well the life and work God has planned for them in His goodness. She believes preschool should be a place where children learn through play, feel cared for and can grow not only academically but socially and emotionally as well and where parents feel cared for and supported.
