Tony Burg 

Simply put, Tony is responsible for bringing Dani's vision of an inclusion preschool to life.

Having left the cold, corporate world in 2017, Tony decided to put his time and creative-energy towards "building" a business from the ground up. From the rock climbing walls to the running river, you name it- Tony built it! (And occasionally has to fix it!)  While he is not in the classroom, Tony is behind the scenes making sure everything runs as it should! Tony graduated from Cal Poly SLO with his Bachelor's in Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurship.  


Rachel is our Butterflies teacher (4-5 years old) here at Little Wings! Rachel is a SLOcal, born and raised, and studied Early Childhood Education at Cuesta College. Rachel brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience as she has been working as a preschool teacher in North county for the past decade. Rachel has a real desire to make a difference in the lives of children- which has given her the ability to connect with every child she meets.



Emily is one of our Teacher’s Assistants! Emily is currently studying Child Development, with a minor in Sociology, at Cal Poly SLO! She adores learning about each child’s interests and personalities. Once she finishes her education, she plans to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and continue to work with children!


Sarah has been a preschool teacher for 13 years! She received her B.S. in Child Development from Cal State Long Beach, and began her teaching career right out of college. She has a background in the Reggio Emilia teaching philosophy, and is a certified California Mentor Teacher. Sarah believes that children learn best through hands on experiences and playing with their peers! Born and raised in Southern California, Sarah moved to the central coast to join the Little Wings team and is thrilled to be a part of this wonderful community!



Born and raised on the Central Coast on her families ranch, Amanda went to college at Saint Mary’s College and earned her BA in English. While she had a great desire to pursue her teaching degree, Amanda switched gears for 14 years and helped manage her family's growing business. Now, she has decided to take a step back from the family business and follow her dreams of working with children.



Hello! My name is Shelby Prescott and I’m so excited to be apart of the team here at Little Wings. I have been teaching for 8+ years and  absolutely love working with children; watching them explore their curiosities and interests is so rewarding. Aside from teaching, I enjoy hiking, going to the beach, and spending time with family.
