In 1966, a group of mothers formed a weekly get-together for their preschool aged children, (sort of like a modern-day mom's group), and 53 years later the program has evolved into the best
preschool in Bozeman, Montana, the Willson Preschool.
A brief history:
- Celeste Haynes became the first Director until 1971 when Jeanne Eggert assumed this position.
- In 1975, Sandy Gilbert became the Director and served for 18 years!
- In 1994, Maggie Murdock became the Director, serving 20 years!
- In March 2006, the preschool moved from the Methodist Church to Christ the King Lutheran Church and was renamed Willson Preschool.
- In 2014, Karen Toresdahl became Director, having taught at the preschool since 1993.
- A teacher at Willson Preschool since 2001, Renee Sabol added the role of Assistant Director to her duties in 2018.
- In the summer of 2021 Karen Toresdahl retired and Renee Sabol and Meredith Johnson became co-directors.
