Welcome to preschool. My name is Cathy Carey and I have been working at St. Mary’s Preschool since 2010. My family and I live in Spring Lake after moving from the thumb area of Michigan in 2005. I graduated from Lake Superior State University with a bachelor’s degree and went on to take additional Early Childhood classes at Mott Community College. I began working by providing in home child care and went on to direct a child care center and preschool in Lapeer. After moving to Spring Lake I worked as a nanny until I joined the St. Mary’s staff.
I have one daughter, Hannah, who is currently studying music education at Central Michigan University. My husband, Hannah and I love to go on vacation adventures that my husband spends all year planning—usually to one of the beautiful national parks. We have one dog, Samson, a rescue dog that completes our family. Samson and I love to walk the trails at the beautiful Ottawa County Parks.
