A Message from the Director

Hello Parents and Visitors! I am so excited to be a part of the Haven Schools team as the Director of Ancillary Services. I look forward to working with the wonderful pre-school, food service and after care staff members. And of course, meeting all my new little bobcat families! My husband, Ed, a Panama City native, and I moved here nine years ago to begin our new adventure. We are "empty nesters" who are enjoying our grown children and our five wonderful grandchildren. I taught preschool for over 25 years and graduated from the University of Cincinnati with my degree in Early Childhood Education.

I look forward to a wonderful 2023/2024 together! Please know that I am always here for any questions, concerns, or suggestions that you may have about our programs.

Kelly Phelan
