Director- Parkland Location
Hello, my name is Lara Egan and I am the Director at Brookside Children’s Early Education Center.
Growing up, I knew that I always wanted to work with young children. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Early Childhood Development. I became the Director here at Brookside in 2016, and prior to that, I have spent over 15 years teaching children of all ages. I am a mom of two children, who keep me busy and entertained every day.
My true passion is not only to work with young children but to share knowledge with families and teachers to provide the best early learning experience for all young learners. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, camping, and spending time with my husband and two young children. I feel lucky to be part of our amazing team at Brookside, and I look forward to teaching your children and building relationships with you all.
