Mrs. Treasure

Lee M. Drescher, Creator & Executive Producer of Treasure Time, developed the Treasure Time concept from a deep understanding of childhood learning processes gained from more than a decade of teaching and working with young children.

Ms. Drescher holds a B.A. from Boston University and two Master’s Degrees; one in Early Childhood Education from Wheelock College, and another in School Libraries from Boston University. Her creation of Treasure Time has allowed her to act as an advocate for the importance of the arts in the education and development of young minds. Ms. Drescher serves as a Board member for Public Action for Arts & Education in Boston and served on the task force for Boston’s After-School for All Partnership. In February 2007 she received a Muse Award from Public Action for the Arts and Education. In addition to Ms. Drescher’s inspiring and creative activities she currently serves eight Head Start Programs in Boston, Massachusetts.

STEAM PLUS Programs by Treasure Time promote literacy through the arts and sciences to children aged 2-8, along with lessons of life. These plays and stories expose children to text and enrich children’s lives, as they acquaint them with a myriad of topics which delve into Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, STEAM; while PLUS is for issues which kids confront during childhood. Treasure Time programs can help children to become informed and catch up after being isolated for a year due to the pandemic or they can just help them to acquire reading skills and learn new facts.
