"Camp Kate" - Katey Levesque Druan. Katey was just a toddler when Laugh & Learn opened its doors. Being raised by all of the "preschool families", we have all watched her grow up before our very eyes. From the only little girl in that first class, to the wonderful Mom of three that she is today. From the time she was old enough, Katey has assisted on field trips and in the preschool. Following high school, Katey ran Vaughn Island 4-H Camp on an island off Kennebunkport, while she received her Bachelor of Science Degree from Springfield College in Massachusetts. Katey has worked for the YMCA program in several different capacities, and joined the staff at a Portland child care facility before beginning her six years as Life Enrichment Coordinator at The Cedars Assisted Living in Portland. In 2015 Katey moved back to Wells and returned to her Preschool Roots, making Laugh & Learn a family business. Since her teen years Kate has attended many conferences both nationally, regionally and locally, and she continues her education through Maine Roads to Quality. Katey is a favorite for our outdoor adventures and Yoga Play. She has been certified by Childlight Yoga since 2016 and has taught at several studios and local venues in addition to her weekly program at Laugh & Learn. She brings a knowledge and compassion for older children, as well as a wealth of songs, games and outdoor skills.
"Kacey" Levesque has literally been raised at Laugh & Learn Preschool- from the time she was a week old she has been a beloved soul. Kacey attended her first Regional Early Childhood Education conference at the age of 4 (where she was the "voice of experience" for various lessons being tested). She has joined "Miss Kimmie" on a conference cruise to the Bahama's and to the National NAEYC conferences in New York and Florida, as well as many regional and local conferences. During college and since graduation, Kacey has served as our most loved substitute teacher - she brings a joy and exuberance for the preschoolers (AND she gives TWO Oreo's!). Kacey received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Curry College and has been a full time registered nurse in the Emergency Department of York Hospital and Wells Urgent Care. We always feel we are in good hands when she is around!
