Our Staff Members



At the heart of our program, there are specially trained teachers in Early Childhood Education to guide and encourage your child through their day. Early Horizons’ teachers are chosen not only for their experience and training, but also for their warmth and enthusiasm. Our teachers respect each child’s need to experience the joy and challenge of doing things themselves; these experiences are what help children excel, and ultimately that is our mission here at Early Horizons.

Nito Labrador is Early Horizons' amazing Administration and Enrollment Director. He has now been at Early Horizons over 20 years and is excited for his future with the preschool. Nito holds a bachelor's degree in Psychology with a minor in Nutrition and Food Science. He also has over 24 Early Childhood Education units and continues to take Child Development courses over time.


Early Horizons' Operations Manager & "COVID Coordinator", Stefanie Alamo has been working around the preschool since 2015, as a substitute, a 2 and 3 year old teacher, and now as an office administrator. Stefanie handles the day to day operations. She is currently enrolled at Mission College to finish her degree in Child Development, but is also a fully qualified preschool teacher. She hopes to be a Preschool Director some day if the opportunity presents itself.
