We believe each child is a unique individual, discovering the world in his or her own way. Like snowflakes, no two children are the same. As teachers it is our job to help guide the children in their classroom and facilitate their educational journey; helping to set them on the path to becoming well-rounded citizens of the world. As teachers it is incredibly rewarding to be a part of this discovery, not only for the children, but for the parents too. We welcome all families to be active participants in your child’s education!
Daphne, Little Sprouts Teacher
Hi there, I’m Daphne!
I recently graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in English and a desire to write children’s literature and young adult fiction. I aspire to be an author like C.S. Lewis, who wrote my favorite children’s series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Despite publishing so many other works, Lewis had a love for children, which is why he is quoted saying “Children are not distractions from more important work, they are the most important work.”
I am so excited to begin working at the Learning Gardens, and help support young children to grow into kind, imaginative, and courageous young adults. I love that the Learning Gardens focuses so much on the children’s well-being and promotes healthy behaviors and creativity throughout all of the daily activities. I couldn’t have hoped for a better opportunity than this!
Jodi, Little Sprouts Teacher
Hi, I’m Jodi! I have spent the last three and a half years doing play based therapy with children with autism and have a degree in Child Life from Edgewood College. I have experience with a wide variety of ages, and am eager to join the one year old classrooms at The Learning Gardens! I am excited to join a center with a strong emphasis on play and Creative Curriculum, as well as so many enrichment opportunities for the children. In my free time, I enjoy traveling and experiencing new things, hanging out with my friends and family, playing soccer, and being outdoors.
