Mrs. Kathy Hayes


Kathy Hayes is the director of Running Start Preschool.

Kathy came to Running Start with a wealth of experience.  She has taught Kindergarten in Brazil and Florida for many years as well as being a preschool teacher.    During their time in Brazil, Kathy's love for children prompted her to open two orphanages for street children.  She and Pastor John also opened feeding programs.


She and her husband are the pastors at Community Church of God.  They both believe that children need a good environment with love, kindness, respect and great teachers.  They have three children of their own and are proud to have their first grand child.


Ms. Tara

Teacher's Assistant

Ms. Tara chose Running Start Preschool to  help with socialization of her daughter and to also prepare her daughter for Kindergarten.  After a few months, Tara offered to volunteer at RSP.  She helped with art, outside play, sat with children during their learning circle, read stories and helped direct activities.

Tara worked in her mother-in-laws preschool/daycare for almost two years.  She worked with ages two through four years.

Tara is currently pursuing her education in Child Development to become a full time preschool teacher.

Her experience as a mother and previous teacher bring a welcome addition to RSP
