3 YEAR OLD CLASS – teacher

Mrs. Thompson

Mrs. Thompson

My name is Lea Ann Thompson and it is an honor and privilege as always, to be welcomed back to be part of the 2022-2023 Playschool year. I love little people and I am super excited to be teaching 2 of the 3-year-old classes. I have been a resident of Strathmore for 24 years and have been teaching preschool for 14 years.  I am married (33 years) and have 5 children (a daughter 29, son-in law 28, two sons, 27 and almost 24 and a daughter-in law 20.) I am a Montessori trained Preschool teacher which will reflect in the program. I am also a music leader at SFGC.

Why Strathmore and District Playschool


“I have had 2 boys go through Strathmore Playschool and have been amazed at how great of an experience it has been! The teachers and administrator love their jobs and it shows! This program made my boys ready for success in Kindergarten and excited to continue learning!”

“Both our daughters absolutely loved their experience. The teachers were kind, attentive, patient and loving. They made learning so much fun that my kids never wanted to leave. Communication with the staff was easy and timely, they always made sure to keep you up to date on your child’s progress.”

Angela Bengivingo

We have had 2 of our children attend the Strathmore and District Playschool and they both loved it. From their Teachers to the welcoming atmosphere our family would recommend this place of fun and education!
