Meet Your Teacher:

Miss Jodi!

Picture of teacher

Hi! I'm Miss Jodi and I teach using a Reggio Emilia inspired curriculum.

I'm passionate about creating a nurturing and engaging environment for our young learners. My teaching philosophy is early literacy skills are important to become a lifelong learner. I believe in hands-on teacher facilitated learning. I believe that children learn best through experiences. These experiences will assist them in being lifelong learners. I have over 10 years of childcare experience along with 32 credit hours in Early childhood Education. My favorite part about teaching preschool is when a child learns a new idea. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my children and boyfriend. We enjoy traveling and camping.

Top 10 Reasons You'll Love Us

Check Out Our Reggio Emelia inspired Program!

#1: We’re a Family!

We want to get to know your family, so please invite your whole family to attend our free fun family events all year long: Meet ‘n Greet, Halloween Party, Holiday Party, and other events throughout the year. You are always welcome to volunteer in our classroom and/or at any of our events.

#2: We Care About You!

Our friendly manner of open communication helps you feel wanted, needed, and appreciated. Our warm, home-like atmosphere sets the standard for how you’ll feel treated as we quickly address your questions and concerns. We can't wait to get to know you better at our Meet 'n Greet before school starts!

#3: Your Child will Make Close Friends!

Our small classes of just 8 children allows your child to be comfortable and grow valuable friendships with the other preschoolers and teacher. Because conflict-resolution skills are super vital to learn at this age, we help your child work through their problems with other children. Pretty soon they’re using the same strategies and words we’ve taught them, all by themselves!

#4: Your child will be more than ready for Kindergarten!

Through the Reggio Emelia Inspired curriculum, your child will learn thru hands on experiences. These experiences are initiated by child's interest with teacher facilitation. Our teachers will guide your child in the areas they need to improve and challenge them when they’re ready for more. Our child-initiated hands-on activities will assist in developing your child’s Social, Emotional, Cognitive, Language, and Physical skills.

#5: Early Literacy Skills are Important to us!

Teaching children is a huge responsibility, and we take that responsibility seriously! Our teaching philosophy includes the importance of learning early literacy skills. Including letter recognition and writing. These skills are learned thru child-initiated interests.

#6: We love to get messy!

Children learn thru hands on experiences, so messes are important to us. All of our art is process oriented not based on art projects. We enjoy playdoh and glue too!

#7: Outside Exploring is Important to us!

To extend our learning we go outside daily. We explore nature thru binoculars where we can learn about birds. We learn about insects and dirt with microscopes. We enjoy taking Polaroid pictures of what we see and writing stories about the pictures. Using our 5 senses we have tons of ways to explore the outside!

#8: Your child gets a shirt and portfolio!

Each year, your child will receive a different t-shirt for that school year to wear on Spirit Days. We also save some of your child’s artwork for a special portfolio you get at graduation.

#9: We learn together!

Our students are given the opportunity to discuss their ideas though out the day! We love to answer the question "Why?"

#10: We celebrate with graduation!

Bring your entire family to our yearly graduation where we celebrate your child's accomplishments in a big way! Your child will graduate every year, so be sure to bring your entire family for a fun family experience for free!

Preschool classes are for children who are ages 3-5 by Sep. 1.

Does my child have to be potty trained?

Yes.  If you have any questions about whether or not your child is ready, feel free to give us a call.  We even have a “How To Potty Train” your child handout we can give you.  It’s helped many preschool moms quickly potty train their kids.  We’re here to help!
