Ms. Hollis

Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten!

My name is Lauren Hollis and I have been teaching at Clay Academy for 4 years. I graduated from Southeast Missouri State University with a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education. I am continuing my education at Lindenwood University to recieve a Master's in School Administration.   

Why is pre-kindergarten important? 

“Pre-K is important because it provides a great foundation for kindergarten, It also exposes children to an educational environment. Many students need that extra year to become accustomed to a classroom and learn how to play with other children. Pre-K gives children a chance to develop and grow while also learning skills needed to be successful for the rest of their lives.”  – D’ Angela Keys
