Pixie Hill Preschool announces new director

Pixie Hill Preschool in Mercer Island has announced a new director, Jenn Boesenberg.

Boesenberg joins Pixie from KidsQuest museum, where she has served as a program coordinator. Her extensive experience in education will serve her well as she joins the Pixie family, according to a news release from the preschool.

Boesenberg earned a bachelor’s degree in early childhood and family studies from the University of Washington and a master’s degree in elementary education from City University. Boesenberg has also led Bellevue School District trainings and research projects for Second Step.

Boesenberg is bubbly, loving, kind and knowledgeable in providing a nurturing play-based and structured preschool environment. She is excited to carry on the Pixie legacy that has been a part of the Mercer Island community for nearly 70 years.

As the preschool welcomes Boesenberg, Pixie will say farewell to Beth Christofferson, who has called Pixie home for several years. Christofferson has brought light, love and joy to the preschool and she will be missed. Pixie will always have a special place in Christofferson’s heart as she moves into a new educational journey and pursues her dream of returning to elementary public education, according to an announcement from the school, which is located at 4025 86th Ave. SE.
