Niki Gilliam became famous around EBPC Preschool in 2012 when she started giving her delicious, homemade cheesecakes to preschool teachers as birthday and teacher appreciation gifts. Exposure and the demand grew, and she's been wearing an apron ever since! Besides volunteering in her children's classrooms, Niki also serves as Family Support Co-Chair on the PTO. Thank you, Niki, for giving your time so generously! And be sure to check out her yummy cheesecakes!


Stephanie Oberheide and her family moved here from Chicago in July 2012. Looking to make friends and support her son Nathan (age 3 at the time), Stephanie became involved with the preschool from day one. Nevermind that her youngest daughter, Coco, was less than a month old! Over the last two years, Stephanie has served in various capacities such as conducting class story times, planning Dr. Seuss Week, attending field trips, and making holiday treats for the students. She has made lasting friendships with other volunteers whom she's met along the way. This school year Coco is in the 2's class, and Stephanie is the PTO President. Thank you, Stephanie, for your service!


Preschool Mom and Artist Ansley Black decorated the chalkboard by Ms. Sheri's office to encourage students to be bucket fillers! Thank you, Ansley!
