Director

Mary Lopez

My name is Mary Lopez and I have been the Director of Little Angels Preschool since its opening in September 2002. I graduated from the Early Childhood Education Program at Santa Barbara City College and am First Aid and CPR certified.

I worked as a teacher/director for 13 years at another local preschool that closed and many years teaching preschool before that. I am one of the founding staff members of Little Angels and so proud of it! I have worked with many of the teachers for years, even before Little Angels. I feel so blessed to have been able to stay together all these years.

Dolores

My name is Dolores and I am a teacher in the Pre-Kindergarten Class (the Butterflies). Teaching at Little Angels is a dream come true. I attended the Early Childhood Education Program at Santa Barbara City College and I am First Aid and CPR certified.

I taught at another local preschool for eight years. I knew Mary Lopez for many years and was thrilled when I was able to join the LAPS team in 2003 and take over the Butterfly Class.
 

ROSALIE

My name is Rosalie and I am one of the teachers in the Butterfly Class. I started teaching with Dolores in 1998 as an assistant at another local preschool, then started teaching here at Little Angels in 2003. I left and spent 4 years teaching at another local preschool but returned to LAPS in 2018 to my former position. I took Early Childhood courses at SBCC and received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Child Development from the University of La Verne. I am CPR and First aid certified.
 

Angelina

My name is Angelina, and I am the Assistant in the Butterfly Class (the Pre-K). I was born and raised in Santa Barbara, and love it here! I have been a nanny in the past and love children, so I decided to enroll in Early Childhood courses at SBCC. I now plan to take more courses, and hope to someday teach elementary school here in Santa Barbara, staying close to the beach that I love! I am so excited to have the opportunity to work at Little Angels, gaining experience in a school setting. I look forward to getting to know the Butterfly children and their families. I am CPR and first aid certified.
