EXPLORATION

innovation

owner/director

Christy Curtin

"After teaching preschool for four years, 

and working with the development of local

charter schools, I opened Arches in 2009.

Arches was a dream that has been incredible

to see come to fruition. I graduated from the

University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor or Arts degree in 

Political Science and Comparative Politics. After graduating, I went 

back for my certification in Early Childhood Administration. I believe

in creating an environment that allows children to investigate and 

​question topics to find answers themselves. In turn, children learn how

to be creative and independently problem solve!"

"I graduated from Northern Kentucky

University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in 

​Mathematics Education. I have been working

at Arches since we opened. The children

make each day a new adventure with their stories,

personalities, and their ability to make the day bright. I love the family environment that we have created at Arches and enjoy seeing Arches grow each year!"
