We have wonderful staff members that are ready for your nursery-aged children every Sunday from 8 a.m. until noon (8:30-11:15 a.m. during the summer). Infants through 6-year-olds are welcome. The staff is trained in our current COVID-19 guidelines which are posted in all nursery areas. All children over 2 must wear a mask at all times.

This is my sixth year teaching at Miss Lee's Preschool, and I genuinely enjoy every second of it. I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in Early Childhood Education at the University of Memphis. One of my hobbies includes coaching basketball at GSL, and I am a huge Memphis Grizzlies fan. Go Grizzlies!

Gabrielle White

For the past 43 years, I lived in Clarksdale MS and was an active member of St George’s Episcopal Church. My husband and I retired in July of 2020 and moved to Memphis to be closer to our two daughters and their families. After attending GSL church services and GSL school activities with our grandchildren, we knew GSL was the perfect place for us to worship. So, we joined GSL last spring. As a mother, grandmother, and registered nurse, I enjoy working and being with children. So, when GSL ask for nursery volunteers, I volunteered. I look forward to meeting each of you and caring for your children on Sunday mornings.
