Ms. andrea lafave

From church nursery to camp counselor to fostering kids to other daycare settings, Ms. Andrea has had many years of experience in childcare. She loves being able to work with children in a christian environment. It's such a joy watching young ones learning how to play with others, learning their ABCs, counting numbers, and finding out about how Jesus loves them. She feels blessed to be a part of this process.

I've worked as a preschool teacher for seventeen yrs and love watching the children grow and learn in a Christian environment.  My son and daughter attended preschool here and learned so much and loved their teachers!!!! Smyrna Christian School has been in the business of teaching children for over forty years and that says alot about this school. I really enjoy working here and have been blessed with amazing coworkers that I'm proud to call my friends.

After her many years of experience teaching young children, Ms. Betty still learns much from them. They are so honest with their thoughts, and they speak words of wisdom daily. Their brains are like sponges, so they keep Ms. Betty on her toes.
