Ms. Karla N. Gray, Director

Dear Club House Family,


Hello, and welcome to the exciting world of preschool! My name is Ms. Karla Gray, and I am so excited to serve as your School Director/Owner. The next few months are sure to be busy as we work to rebuild, explore, and grow together. It is my true desire to assure that all students and staff are safe at all times, and treated with kindness, respect and compassion.

It is also my desire to present the best preschool program possible, in order to address the most appropriate level of development for each child, and to help assure the continuation of a positive happy experience here at the center.

I have had a great amount of prior experience with a large amount of families and organizations throughout Philadelphia, Chester City, Delaware and the surrounding Tri-State area. Mount Pleasant CDC Nursery & Preschool, Chester Community Charter School (East & West Campus) as well as the Infamous Kollective Talent Foundation, Inc. just to name a few. I am a proud native of Twin Oaks, PA, and I have 6 godchildren Shai (22), Giovanni (14), Lilliana (14) Giada (8), Giuliana (3), and Summayah (1) whom I love dearly, and spend a lot of time with.

I would like to encourage you to contact me whenever you have questions and/or concerns about your child or the program. Please be sure to make sure that all of your child’s emergency contact information is  ALWAYS kept current!
