Kristin Williams Tokić,
Founder & Director
My life mission is to engage our youth in the arts. It was my music teacher, Mr. Bloom, who exposed me to music and theatre, and made my life a beautiful example of how one teacher can impact a child’s future. By age fourteen, I had performed in six countries, twelve states and had sung at the White House twice. After attaining my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre from the University of Michigan, I received my K-12 teaching credentials for the arts at California State University, and went on to acquire my Administration and Educator Credentials for Early Childhood Education. Having written two California State approved theatre arts curricula, and published numerous children’s books, I aim to inspire a child’s imagination through every facet of the arts. My ten years performing for the Walt Disney Company, worldwide, allowed me to see the world and to dream big!
The Palisades Performing Arts Preschool is a big dream, put in motion for the children of the future. As a mother of two beautiful children, Hanna and Noa, I know first-hand that our children’s education journey is a Partnership. Let’s work together to engage, enrich, and encourage our future leaders, today.
