TNS Staff
Turlock Nursery School has a wonderful, caring and experienced staff.

Introducing the New Turlock Nursery School Director - Kelly Pangrazio

I am so excited to be the incoming Director for Turlock Nursery School! As a fifth year parent at TNS and a former member of the TNS Board of Directors, I continue to love what TNS offers my children and my family—a caring, supportive, and nurturing atmosphere in which every child’s uniqueness is celebrated and every parent has a voice. My prior experiences as both a preschool and elementary school teacher have shown me the value of the learn-through-play program for our children’s overall development. Being raised in Turlock and now bringing up my family in Turlock, I am also proud to represent a school with such a rich and lasting presence in our community. I look forward to meeting you and your families! Please email me if you have any questions or would like to set up a tour: [email protected] We still have a few spots available for the 2018-19 school year!

Lori Fox joined our teaching team in the fall of 2015 and has been such a gift to our program. Lori has 20 years of teaching experience with preschool age children.


Our afternoon teacher and afternoon supervisor, Mary Dalton has been with Turlock Nursery School for 20 years. Her passion for early childhood development shows in her work and the children benefit from the smaller class size and afternoon activities.                                           


Our retired director, Julie Johnson, was  with the school for over 34 years. She will be retiring June of 2017 and we will transition to a new director (Jaime Dunn) for the 2017-18 school year. She will still be a valuable source for our school.

Board Members: Turlock Nursery School  has a dedicated board made up of parent volunteers. This elected board meets monthly to manage the day to day functions of the school and to make sure we are providing a rich learning environment that is in accordance to our mission statement.                                                               Current Board Members 2018-2019                     
Parents: Because we are a parent participation nursery school, parents are also involved in the day to day operations. These include: assisting the teachers in class, classroom management, cleaning and student safety. As a TNS parent you are part of our school day and an important part in the connection between home and school.
