Larisa's Mini Scholars Preschool



As your childs' first teacher, you play a big part in how well your son or daughter does in school.




I invite you to work along side me as your child takes this journey through my Preschool program. If we work together, we have the best opportunity to help your child easily transition into Kindergarten.

About the owner


My name is Larisarae (I just go by Larisa) I am 26 years old. I have two little girls of my own, a 8 year old and a 4 year old. I have been operating my preschool since August 2015. I have my Business License in the city of Spokane Valley that allows me to run my preschool program. 

I graduated with my Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education in Fall of 2014, I graduated from my program with honors at Spokane Falls Community College. I also graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management with a minor in Children's Studies from Western Governor's University.

Some of my qualifications include: 

  • Bloodbourne Pathogen Training
  • Annually renewed CPR/First Aid/AED Training
  • Cleared Background Check
  • Food Handlers Card
  • Current Immunizations
  • Over 100 Hours of STARS Trainings
  • 9 years of working in daycares/preschools 
  • Over 800 Field Hours

I offer a lot of Montessori and Reggio Emelia inspired

curriculum and activities in my classroom, without the 

extra cost. I am a firm believer that once you find out exactly what does, and does not work for each child, you can help them thrive with anything they are doing. I work hard to ensure I am giving my students every possible opportunity I can give them in their time here with me. Working with children has always been a passion of mine, so I put my heart and soul into my classroom each day.
