Preschool Staff


The Moon Valley Preschool is a licensed preschool facility that follows state licensing policies and procedures and aligns to Early learning standards. We also partner with First things First and Quality first as our Industry Partners and are aligned with all other existing Early Childhood Programs within the Glendale Union High School District.  Our preschool staff is Highly Qualified, First Aid and CPR Certified and all have their Fingerprint Clearance as well. 

  We have three adult staff members that supervise the program and work with your children every day, Diana Gandara (Director), Tammy Dababneh (Assistant Director), and Maria Marshall (Afternoon Teacher).

Our program is designed to work in conjunction with the Early Childhood Development classes taught by our Program Coordinator, Brandi Jans.  We partner with high school students who choose to devote their time and talents to learning how to educate young children.  This means that your child will be in a classroom where there is one teacher for approximately 4-5 students.  This lower ratio provides more one-on-one attention for your child. 

 We are very excited and proud of our unique program.  The emotional, social, and educational well-being of the children is our top priority.  We are looking forward to meeting and working with you to provide the best possible preschool experience for you and your child.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at:
