Elsie Thurman, Director
Welcome to our school! My journey with early childhood began as a student at the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk!), where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Education, emphasis in Early Childhood Education. I have been a director for the past 5 years and love meeting all the children and families in the community.
In my spare time, my husband and I like to travel with our two boys, Max and Leo, who make everything an adventure. I look forward to making Canterbury Academy your home away from home for your children!
Taylor McQuinn, Assistant Director
Welcome to Canterbury! I am from Maryville, Missouri and moved to Kansas City in 2016 with my husband, Jason, and dog, Winston. I obtained my degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Child and Family Studies from Northwest Missouri State University. I have been a teacher in all age groups - I truly do not have a favorite!
In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, traveling, and taking my fur baby on walks. My passion has always been working with young children. I look forward to watching them learn and grow!
