Director and 3-and 4-Day teacher
Julie comes to CPPP with over 20 years of experience working in Early Childhood Education. She has a Bachelor degree in Human Development with an emphasis on Child Development and a Program Director Permit issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
Julie was a participating parent at Cupertino Co-op in 1999 and strongly believes that a child’s development is strengthened through a close bond between families and school. Parents and teachers partner together so that we as a team offer a safe, nurturing, learning experience.
Each child should be recognized as an individual and each child’s development is unique. My job as a teacher is to help foster kindness, respect for others and independence through a fun, enriching learning environment.

Ashlee first came to Campbell Parents’ Participation Preschool in 2019 and taught our toddler class. Having flourished in that roll, Ashlee has come back to teach our 2’s class.
Ashlee holds a Master's degree in Clinical Social Work with emphasis on child mental health from Loyola University Chicago, and a Bachelor's degree in youth, adult and family services from Purdue University. In addition, she is credentialed as a Lactation Educator Counselor by the University of California San Diego. Ashlee has an extensive background working with children and families, having spent several years as a psychotherapist providing individual and family therapy. Her love and passion for play-based early education comes from several years in parent participation preschools with her two sons.
Ashlee is originally from Indiana, and made California her forever home in 2010. She enjoys hiking, live music and spending time outdoors with her husband, two sons and dog.
I believe preschool aged children learn so many foundational skills during their early educational years. These valuable skills are learned, practiced and mastered through play. How fun! I am passionate about creating learning spaces that provide a safe and nurturing environment with opportunities for children to explore, create, be challenged and practice problem solving. Creating community and facilitating opportunities for families to connect and support each other is something I care deeply about. Come play with us!
