Director, The Learning Tree Preschool
Michele Shipley serves as the Director of The Learning Tree Preschool. Originally from Long Island, New York, she relocated to the Georgetown area in 2021 with her husband and four children. Michele served as Children’s Ministry Director in her former church in New York and joyfully led the Sunday School team, VBS and youth programs. She has also taught preschool for many years before advancing to administration of a well-respected, play-based Methodist preschool in Valley Stream, New York. Teaching as Jesus taught, using object lessons, stories and love, are at the core of her teaching philosophy. Michele is very excited to lead The Learning Tree preschool into the future!
