Elizabeth Steele, Director

Before joining the family at Way to Grow ELC in 2015, I was a director of a preschool and childcare center in Edmonds for almost 5 years. Type your paragraph here. My philosophy is that every child should be given the opportunity to enjoy enriching learning experiences in a safe, healthful, and esthetically-pleasing environment where they will feel safe to explore and gain self-confidence. 
I live with my husband, Zack, and my daughter, Avery, in Lake Stevens.


My journey in the early childhood education field began in the summer of 2004. I was fresh out of high school, and was in need of a summer job. My sister was a director of a childcare center at the time, and hired me on as an assistant toddler teacher. 


After my first day at the childcare center, I knew that was where I belonged. My “summer job” became my passion. As the years went by, I began taking Early Childhood Education college courses, and eventually earned a Child Development Associate certificate.
