The new school opens in January 2023 and will offer best-in-class daycare, childcare, and preschool to Fremont children. The Montessori-inspired strategy helps children not only fall in love with learning but acquire a foundation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in age-appropriate ways.


Yessica started her journey on her educational career path 30 years ago after graduating with an Education degree in Mexico. She founded and operated her own preschool for five years, then relocated to the U.S. with her family, where she worked as a teacher for seven years and a site director for 17 years at a school in Fremont. Yessica has been working and training with LAPMS for the past school year, in preparation for her new role.

During her free time, she loves spending quality time with her family and traveling. Yessica notes, “I am excited to get to know every student, family member, and teacher that comes through the Centerville location so that we can work together in a collaborative, safe, and fun environment.”

LAPMS joins us in congratulating Yessica on her new appointment as we proudly open yet another LAPMS location to serve Fremont families.
