• Welcome to STEP Preschool

    Mrs. Krause  


    Welcome to Hutchison Farm Early Childhood Program. I'm Mrs. Krause (pronounced Krowse, like mouse). I am looking forward to being your child's teacher and being a part of their first school experience. In our classroom, we learn through play and exploration. We work in large groups, small groups, and individually with the teachers. We sing alot, we dance alot and we have fun alot! To keep you up to date of all that is happening in our classroom, a monthly newletter is sent home at the beginning of each month. Updates can also be found on our class secure website called BLOOMZ! I'm excited for a great school year. See you soon! Go HUSKIES! 


     A Little About Me: This is my 3rd year at Hutchison Farm and my 5th year with LCPS as an Early Childhood Education teacher.  Prior to teaching STEP, I was an Early Childhood Special Education teacher for 17 years. Before coming to Loudoun, I taught ECSE with Arlington Public Schools for 14 years. I absolutely love teaching and feel it is my calling and my passion. I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. 

    I live in Loudoun County with my husband, our my twin daughters who are in middle school and our 2 cats and 1 dog.  I hold a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education from Radford University and a Masters in Early Childhood Special Education from George Mason University.

    In my spare time, I can be found being outdoors with my family, exercising, paddle boarding, crafting, and re-decorating. I especially love college football and cheer on Penn State University all year long!
