From The Director's Desk:

Welcome to Peace Preschool! 

I am Mary Mayo, the Director of Peace Preschool.  We are proud to offer a balanced approach to early childhood education that values both academic readiness and exploratory play.   With over 22 years of experience as an elementary school teacher, private tutor,  early childhood education teacher and preschool director, I am passionate about working with teachers and families to create a warm, caring environment where children are excited to play and learn.

I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in English, from Texas A&M University, and have been a member of the Peace Preschool family since 2001.  My husband Kevin and I have been married 25 years, and we have two boys, Preston (20) and Connor (17), both of whom are Peace Preschool alumni. 

I invite you to contact me and schedule a time to tour our school and see our curriculum in action.  Email me at:  preschool@peaceaustin.org.
