 Elizabeth Wardein   

Elizabeth is in her 7th year of teaching, most of those years spent in Pre-K or subbing.  She received her degree in Elementary Education from Franciscan University.  She grew up in Springfield and relocated to Naples, Florida for several years before returning to the area.  She has several brothers and sisters and 15 nieces and nephews ranging in age from newborn to 14 years old.   She is single but enjoys her time with her nieces and nephews and other family in the area.  Coming to work at St. Theodore Preschool is a bit like coming home because of the small, family like environment of the Catholic Grade school she grew up attending, and she is excited to be here!

Parent Testimonials

  • Best decision I have made for my son's growth and development!  He is in a loving and nurturing environment where the teachers go the extra mile!  The daily sheets help open communication with our son about his day and all the new skills he is learning.  I love when we discover he knows something "new" that he has learned at school.  It is a great program that focuses on social, emotional, cognitive and physical development.   As a former teacher who was in the field of early childhood education and has a degree in education....I wouldn't want my son anywhere else!   -Anonymous


  • An incredible staff that takes the learning experience for our kids to the next level.  I could not imagine a better environment for my son.  -Ashley W.


  • The staff here is amazing and my child has received the best kick start to her elementary education.  The family-friendly environment has provided my child the comfort you would expect from a family member, not just child care providers.   I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to see their child thrive, grow and succeed.    -Toni P.
