Kat Chaffin is the teacher of our Pre-K and Preschool classes at

Creative Discoveries.  Kat has experience as a co-op preschool parent and a

parent educator, as well as an outgoing nature and all-around love of children.


   Kat’s teaching experience, broad knowledge, and genuine interest in the lives and development of children nurtures an important period of social growth through imaginative play and interaction. Parents also benefit by seeing how their children respond

to a learning environment and to interactions within their peer group.

Lisa Houghton has retired from her position at Creative Discoveries Preschool with a wealth of experience to impart on our new teacher, Kat. She worked in co-op preschools since 1999, first as a parent teacher and then as a teacher, and she taught at Creative Discoveries from 2006-2020.

Though she is no longer in the classroom, Lisa plays a vital role as a support, mentor, and friend to Teacher Kat. Our school still feels her spirit loud and clear!
