Mrs. Abby Lazarus, EdS. Owner/Teacher
I am the owner of Little Peaches Preschool. Mr. Shaun( My husband) and I are parents to three children, Riley (17), Avery (15), and Pacey (9). I have lived in Cheyenne for around 25 years. I was born and raised in Brunswick, Ga. I love the color green, food of all sorts, and I can be bribed with Dr. Pepper, Coffee, and baked goods! I LOVE reading and plan to retire on a beach somewhere!
I have my EdS. in Early Childhood Education. I, also have a Masters in Early Childhood Studies and a Bachelors in Child Development. I am entering my 17th year in the ECE profession. My passion has always been teaching young children.
Advocating for preschoolers and their families is something I really feel is my calling. I truly believe in what I do here every day at preschool. I will spend the rest of my life educating others so that they understand the value of preschool education.
Mrs. Layne Varland- Assistant Director/Teacher
My husband Chad and I and have 2 boys MJ(11) and Lincoln(9). I graduated from high school here in Cheyenne before continuing my education. I came to Little Peaches after enrolling my oldest in Abby’s program. I volunteered in the classroom and just came to love working with the kids and working for Abby and lucky for me Abby chose to “adopt” me! I have been working at Little Peaches for 7 years now and truly value the relationships I’ve been able to build with the kids and their families. I have a passion for instilling healthy habits in children which I fostered earlier by working with the YMCA teaching yoga. I love teaching yoga to the kids in our program. I am a lover of animals (especially goats) , good food, coffee and a nice glass of red wine! We camp often as a family and love being outdoors together.
I look forward to being one of your teachers and your family joining our Little Peaches Family!
