Meet the Preschool Sweethearts That Reunited 20 Years Later!

Family | November 10, 2020

A lot of people claim that high school romances never last, we wonder what they would say about preschool romances. Matt Grodsky and Laura Scheel are a clear example of just that. They met in preschool when they were three years old and despite their young age, created a remarkable bond. The two toddlers were inseparable with Matt even declaring his love for Laura in front of everyone. As time went on, the sweethearts grew up and went on to attend different schools and the distance took its toll and the pair lost touch. Luckily, that was not meant to be the end of their relationship…

Matt and Laura Met in Preschool

This story goes back almost a quarter of a century. When they were three years old, Matt Grodsky and Laura Scheel both attended the same preschool in Phoenix, Arizona. The two kids hit it off right away and became fast friends.

Matt saw Laura for the first time on the playground and immediately knew that he wanted to be her friend. He decided to let her know by following her wherever she went. Laura took the hint and befriended Matt and they soon became inseparable. Their parents thought that the friendship between them was the cutest thing ever but didn’t pay it too much attention. Kids change their friends all the time after all.

Laura Saw Matt as a Goofball at First

When Matt decided that he wanted to be Laura’s friend, he started following her around the playground all day. In an interview, he told Today, “I don’t remember the first time I saw her, but she was always a girl who let me follow her around.”

Laura didn’t understand why Matt was following her around and thought he was a goofball at first, but soon discovered that he was funny and good-hearted. The duo quickly became the best of friends. They did everything together, from playing hide-and-seek out on the playground to keep each other up when they were supposed to be napping.
