 Scot met and fell in love with his wife Manuela while stationed with the U.S. Army in Darmstadt, Germany.  Prior to coming to Lincoln, Manuela was the Director of Great Kids Academy an early childhood education center for the community of South Bend, Indiana.  Manuela saw the need for a preschool/day care that was Christ centered and dedicated to educating children between the ages of 1 - 5+ years old, and so she developed a business plan and then took it to the First Seventh-day Adventist Church of South Bend.  After getting the church's support she started the school and implemented the Reggio Emilia style of curriculum, a style that she learned while a kindergarten teacher in Germany, and she had great success in preparing kids for a lifetime of learning.  When Manuela is not teaching or taking care of her three own kids she enjoys classical music, visiting art galleries and catching up with friends.
