About Us

♥ First of all, what in the world are “Warm Fuzzies”? Here are a few definitions:

  • The warm, pleasant sensations one feels in the stomach and heart area when emotionally moved by an act of goodwill or love
  • Feelings of happiness, contentment or sentimentality
  • The feeling evoked by being enclosed in a warm blanket


♥  Chelsea Conger  

I am a mother, artist, quilter, home improvement enthusiast, muralist, teacher, dreamer, baker, and lover of all things whimsical and happy. At Warm Fuzzies Preschool I am a teacher, care giver, story teller, boo-boo healer, and our students’ number one fan. I knew when I was a wee little girl that I wanted to be a teacher. What could be better than helping little children discover and learn about our world? Since graduating from Eastern Michigan University with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education I have taught preschool (play-based), traditional kindergarten, and Montessori preschool and kindergarten. I have loved it all and have been waiting for the chance to put it all together, pull out the best parts of each and start my own school. That is how Warm Fuzzies Preschool was created!

 Frederic Conger

Frederic, also known as Freddie, The Fredster, Freddie G, and Fred, is our oldest darling baby boy. He was born in December of 2012 and is a spectacular little dude (yes, we might be biased)! He loves playing basketball, laughing, searching for bugs, reading books, chatting, riding his bike, and is a big time animal lover. Freddie is now in kindergarten but we will see him every afternoon when he comes home from school. 


♥ Franklin and Theodore Conger

Franklin (Frankie) and Theodore (Teddy) are our amazing twin baby boys. They were quite the surprise but have been an incredible gift to our family. They were born in October 2014 and are adorable, chubby, happy little boys (again, yes, we might be biased)! Frankie and Teddy will also be at Warm Fuzzies Preschool every day. 


♥ David Conger                          

Dave, or Davey as I like to call him, is my wonderful husband. He is also a teacher and specializes in Mathematics and Physical Education. In addition to his teaching license Dave also has a B.A. in Economics & Business Management. He handles all of the “behind the scenes” business at Warm Fuzzies and makes sure that all of our ducks are in a row! Dave is also present in the classroom and is a teacher and role model at Warm Fuzzies. Dave loves doing anything outdoors and anything active. He played basketball in Dexter and then at Albion college but after tearing his ACLs (ligament in the knee) 3 times (yes, 3!!), he decided to retire. Now he does still shoot hoops, but only with Freddie, Frankie, and Teddy.
