The Butterfly Room
Children develop a love or an aversion for learning in the first few years of life. Therefore, we work to design our program to generate a lifelong desire to explore, question, and create. We plan our classroom environment and age-appropriate curriculum to best support and nurture our children’s interests and needs. We give children a wide range of opportunities to experience and learn from their environment to provide them with skills that will serve them not only in the short-term but also throughout life.
JJ, Butterflies Teacher
Hi, TLG families. I am so excited to be a part of The Learning Gardens family, and one of the Butterflies teachers. My experience before childcare was in a clinical setting using my abnormal psychology skills and knowledge. I have been at The Learning Gardens since 2018. I have a passion for two things: babies and learning. As an infant teacher, I love to snuggle babies. At the same time, early brain development and attachment is very important to me. A child’s brain goes through an amazing period of development between 0-3 years old. Their brains produce 700 neural connections every second!! My education includes: MA Organizational Management with a Healthcare Administration concentration, BA in psychology, and the proper credentials to be a licensed daycare provider. I have been married for almost 20 years. Together my husband and I have: 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 high schoolers, and 2 adult children. Our home is never boring!
