Hello, my name is Rorie Unrein and I am the owner and one of the teachers at Pumpkin Patch Preschool.  Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. 

I have had the wonderful gift of working with preschool children for nearly 20 years.  Helping ignite that spark in children to ask questions, figure things out and explore is one of the best feelings I’ve ever had.  

Our main intent through the year will be preparing your child for Kindergarten. Which of course is more than just 123’s, and ABC’s.  It’s exploring our world and community.  It’s how to be considerate with our friends and celebrate our differences and recognizing our similarities.  It’s having FUN.  Which is how learning should always be! 


My name is Karen and I have over 20 years teaching experience in early childhood education. I have a passion for helping children with disabilities and various learning styles.  I believe every child is a gift, an individual and a blessing to our community.  

In addition to early childhood education I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in music and am a local performer.

I love spending time with my family. I have a son, I foster parent and am also a doggie Mom.
