Three-year-olds that meet specific eligibility factors may also qualify for free preschool. Please visit the BVSD Colorado Universal Preschool Program Website for additional information.

Lizzy Eberstadt-Straty - Supervisor

My name is Lizzy, and I am so excited to be part of your childs’ learning experience. Each day is a new adventure just waiting for the first step. I have been working with children since 2014. I worked at KinderCare where I worked with a wide age range of children, mainly toddlers and infants. In 2021 I started working at Mapleton Early Education Center as an Assistant Supervisor for the Preschool Enrichment Program. I am proud to be a Colorado native. I am also a mother of a beautiful daughter named Emma. At home we like to spend our time together listening to music, coloring, doodling, hiking, watching movies, and playing games. I also live with 2 amazing pets, Foster and Shasta. They really complete my amazing family.
