Director and Head Teacher, Tracey McEntyre
Tracey is a retired Early Childhood Educator with over 20 years of experience in Early Childhood Education. Her educating background includes extensive teaching experience with ages 3- 6yrs , childcare management, training, and running a preschool STEM enrichment program. Tracey took a break from teaching when she became a mother to her son "Roman". Her career path changed when her son was diagnosed with Autism. It was then that Tracey decided to retire from the industry and begin their Autism journey. it was on this journey, that Tracey soon became a mentor and advocate for kids with Autism and their families. Understanding the struggles of finding appropriate child care is hard enough, but for parents with a child with special needs its impossible.
Tracey immediately started researching ways to create a learning environment that welcomes all children. Little Elm STEAM Academy was created because of her love and commitment for all children to have a meaningful education. Tracey's philosophy is that all children learn and experience differently. Children just need an intimate environment to feel safe and free to be themselves. Perfect for exploring, experimenting, inventing, and creating.
