Meet the Preschool Leadership


Hello! My name is Yara Ayoub, and I am excited to be the director at The Preschool at Point Washington. I have been in the educational field for over 6 years, both as a teacher and counselor. I hope to share the experience I have gained with you and your children!


I was born and raised in New Jersey and have been residing abroad with my family for the last 9 years.  We are thrilled to have made our way to the beautiful state of Florida! I enjoy spending time with my family and travelling the world learning about different cultures. I graduated from Notre Dame University with a Bachelor's degree in English Language and Literature, which sparked my passion for educating children. 


My aim is to nurture a bond between teachers and families in order to provide a solid foundation for each child through the light of God.  I am looking forward to meeting you and your children and I am privileged to be a part of The Preschool community.

Howdy! My name is Stephanie Sparkman and I am the assistant director for The Preschool at Point Washington. I would like to take some time to tell you a little bit about myself.


I was born and raised in Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Special Education. In Texas, I ran a non-profit that advocated for and supported individuals with Down syndrome. Later, I moved to Wyoming where I then taught early childhood special education. My husband, Allen and I now reside in Florida where we enjoy going to the beach and spending time with our Australian Shepherd, Beau Barkman.


I am looking forward to getting to know you and your families. I know that God has a plan and it is a good plan. I look forward to shining His light and providing the right start for your child’s early education.
