About Our Preschool

Our goal at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Preschool is to provide a safe and supportive environment where each child can feel secure and thrive. We endeavor to create an environment where you, the parent, will feel comfortable and confident about leaving your child in our care. While our main focus is on your child’s social and emotional growth, we also know children are developing in cognitive and physical skills. Along with these skills we want our children to learn of God’s love for them, and have a chance to explore God’s wonderful world.

Preschool Director

Valerie Macias

Valerie joined St. Andrew’s for the third time in July 2022, having previously served as a teacher at St. Andrew’s preschool from 2000 to 2001 and again from 2006 to 2014. During her previous tenures, she wholeheartedly shared her dedication to early childhood education with our children and families. After obtaining her certificate as a board-certified assistant behavior analyst, Valerie worked as a behavioral interventionist and clinical supervisor for several years, providing support to children and families with special needs. Now, she has returned to St. Andrew’s as our Preschool Director.

Born and raised in Fletcher Hills, Valerie and her husband, Paul, have been happily married for 25 years. They are blessed with two adult children. Joseph is presently pursuing a degree in child and family development at San Diego State University while also contributing as a teacher’s aide at the preschool. Emma, who recently graduated from Grossmont High School, will commence her studies at San Diego State University in the upcoming fall. Paul is employed in the IT department of the San Diego County Office of Education.  In her leisure time, Valerie finds joy in reading and cherishes moments spent with her family and friends. At home, she finds comfort in the company of her two dogs and three cats. Her fondness for the color purple is an enduring passion. 💜
