Preschool Director

Gaby Moran

Gaby is originally from Santiago, Chile. She received her degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Concepcion in 1984. She moved to the USA in 1987 and joined the Dolley Madison Preschool family in October 1996. She has been a teacher for 18 years, teaching in the 4 year old class.

At Dolley Madison Preschool, we have a wonderful staff of caring individuals who genuinely enjoy children and are dedicated to nurturing each child's intellectual, emotional, social and physical needs. Many of our teachers have either a bachelors or masters degree in Early Childhood Education and/or Human Growth and Development. They all are affiliated with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) - Northern Virginia and SACUS. In addition, our staff regularly participate in continuing education workshops and seminars and are first aid and CPR certified. Our school encourages open communication and parent involvement, part of which is met through yearly parent/teacher conferences. To meet individual child development needs, we maintain a low child-to-staff ratio. We are proud to say our staff collectively has over 150 years of teaching at Dolley Madison.
