Our Director

Hello and thank you for your interest in Snyder Preschool and Learning Center. My name is Heather Sweeting and it is a privilege and a blessing to serve as the Director of such an outstanding program and be part of what God is doing here at Snyder Preschool and Learning Center.

I am a graduate from Ashford University, where I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Public Administration. Additionally, I have a Master’s Degree from Clemson University in Human Resource Development. I spent 24 years working with the Cumberland County School System in an administrative leadership position, where I had the pleasure of fulfilling many roles, with my greatest joy serving as the Licensure and Training Coordinator for the before and after school program.

Here at Snyder, my team and I strive for excellence and seek to provide a place where children can grow spiritually, academically and socially in a warm and loving environment. Snyder is blessed with a dedicated and experienced staff and every member of our staff is committed to academic excellence and helping your child build Christ-like character.

Please stop by and visit our beautiful facility, I look forward to serving you and your family!
