Director Spotlight: Sarah Appleby
Sarah is the new incoming Director for Hibben Preschool. Sarah started April 21 and is working alongside Kim until her retirement at the end of this school year.

I love the preschool ages! Getting to watch them grow and learn with such joy and excitement is truly a blessing. I am so thankful that God has allowed me to join the Hibben Preschool family!

I was born in the DC area, went to school at American University, and spent most of my career leading the children’s team at McLean Bible Church. My husband, Thomas, is from Mt. Pleasant and we moved here in 2020 to be closer to family. We have 2 children, Caroline, who is 2 and Corbett, who is 1, Both will be at Hibben this fall! We love anything having to do with being outside and on the water and I also love a good cup of coffee with a good book!

I can’t wait to get to know each of your kiddos and families more!


Wishing you abundant blessings this Easter, a time of hope, joy and renewal! He is risen! He is risen indeed!
