Education Expedition’s “Chief Expedition Officer” is Dawn Priestley, a 25-year veteran of the early childhood education industry.  Dawn has taught in small independent child care centers as well as large corporate based centers in the inner city and more affluent areas.  She has seven years experience as an administrator and spent a year serving as the director of the largest preschool in the state of North Carolina.

Early in Dawn’s teaching career, she read that “a child will have a higher capacity for learning before their 5th birthday than they will for the rest of their lives.”  She realized in that moment what a huge responsibility she had in offering the best possible educational environment and the most expansive resources to her students each and every day.  The children in her care would never be as engaged, enthusiastic, curious and thirsty for knowledge as they were right then.  That was the inspiration Dawn used to create Education Expedition, because the chances of life success could only be maximized if a child’s formative years were spent having fun learning about the world around them and learning to love education.

Education Expedition believes every child should have the best possible educational resources available to them starting at the youngest age possible. They deserve engaged, enthusiastic, dedicated teachers that consider it a privilege to be making an impact on their lives each and every day.  They deserve the best possible curriculum that is fun, challenging, creative and diverse in it’s methods.  And they deserve a learning environment that is child-focused, thought provoking, visually appealing and a reflection of their accomplishments.

It is an amazing privilege you have to be able to teach your children that want so very much to learn.  Let Education Expedition help make that journey happy, fun and full of adventure!
