Opening Little Stars Preschool has been a long-time dream of Corey’s since she started teaching in Bellevue School District many years ago. Corey has a degree in Human and Child Development from Washington State University (GO COUGS!) and went on to get her master’s degree in Education at Western Washington University.

After teaching Kindergarten through third grade in public school for years Corey decided to stay home and raise her four children. As her fourth child got older, she knew she wanted to get back to work with children. In 2011, Big Star Studios was born out of a shared passion for educating children in the arts.
