EILEEN SINCLAIR, M.ED, NBCT
Founder / Teacher at Seattle Location
Hello! My name is Eileen Sinclair (Ms Eileen) and I am thrilled to be starting my third year with Little Garden Learning. I love being outside and look forward to learning and growing together out in nature with your children.
My outdoor adventuring started in Ontario, Canada, with summers spent canoe camping, backpacking, open water swimming and winters spent building igloos, ice fishing, skiing, snowshoeing, and skating. I began my formal teaching career as a Special Education Preschool teacher in a large urban school district 12 years ago.
The garden is my happy place, full of birdsong and the occasional opera aria (our neighbour is an Opera singer). Nothing makes me happier than the sound of children playing, exploring, and discovering outside. I love that I am able to share this space and am so grateful for the trust you place in me when you bring your children to learn and grow in the garden.

Greetings! My name is Ann-Krestene Bazan (Ms Ann), and I am thrilled to be working with our fabulous little nature enthusiasts for another season at Little Garden Learning. I genuinely believe there is nowhere more beautiful and inspiring than the Pacific Northwest. I am looking forward to learning and growing together out in nature.
I’ve spent my entire life living among the evergreens and saltwater beaches just north of Seattle. I’ve homeschooled both of my children (now in middle and high school) and have worked with various schools, organizations, camps, and co-ops, all centered around hands-on and inquiry-based approaches.
In my spare time, you can find me outside. I grow a large part of my family’s food during the summertime, and I love tending to my garden and chickens. I have a black English Labrador named Dottie, and we love forest romps, camping, playing on the beach, and hikes together. I’m so eager to get to know all of our new kiddos and look forward to sharing this program with you!
All of our staff have been fully vaccinated. We are Red Cross First Aid & CPR certified.
Animals play a prominent role in our curriculum at Little Garden Learning. From the spawning salmon we observe in Piper's Creek in late fall, to collecting fresh eggs from our chickens during our Summer Camps, we
believe animal study and familiarity are essential. To that end, Little Garden Learning also utilizes our family pets as we model caring and respect for all living things that make up our world.
I'm a friendly goofy pup and live with Ms Eileen. My expertise is happy greetings and an eagerness to please. I love storytime in the swing and lazing in the sun.
I'm 11 years young and live with Ms Ann. I love taking long walks with the PM class and supervise the Summer Camps in Edmonds. I offer a calm and patient presence, perfect for friends with or without dog experience.
