About Preschool Plannables
Christine Edmunds (left) and Kendra Struve (right) are the owners of Tangerine Schoolhouse, Bay Street Schoolhouse, Sunshine Schoolhouse, and the creators of Preschool Plannables. They have both worked in early childhood education since 2001 in a variety of roles from assistant preschool teachers, to lead teachers, to directors.
They met working at a preschool in 2015 and became fast friends. They realized they both shared a vision of what preschool could look like - a place for children to explore and learn through play, something they knew was not only backed by decades of research, but that their own personal experience had taught them as well. Their experience in the field and their drive to create a safe, loving, and nurturing environment in which children could thrive led them to Tangerine Schoolhouse in 2019, then Bay Street Schoolhouse in 2021 and Sunshine Schoolhouse in 2023.
Since then, they've worked to create Preschool Plannables, a curriculum that allows children to explore their curiosities and guides teachers in incorporating meaningful play and thoughtful provocations in their day-to-day classroom activities. Seeing children interact with the monthly investigations in new ways they couldn't have imagined is one of their favorite things to see at the schools!
