Miss Jen

Hi!  My name is Jen and I've taught in San Diego County since 1995.  I received a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education in 1994 and a Master of Science in Education in 2001.  I began my teaching career working in a private school in Rancho Santa Fe, worked for the Carlsbad Unified School District, then taught for a charter school for several years.  I enjoyed working with preschool children the most so I opened Elm Park Preschool in 2010 to continue doing what I love best- enriching the lives of preschool children.  I've lived in Poway since 2007 and I am the proud mom of two boys who attend school in Poway.

I think the preschool years are unique and precious.  These important years lay the foundation for learning throughout a child's entire school career.  I believe in making learning fun and exciting; I also recognize the importance of Kindergarten readiness.  I feel it is our job to provide opportunities for our children to grow academically, socially, and spiritually.

Miss Nichole

Hi, my name is Nichole and I'm married with two amazing children living in Poway. I have worked as a childcare professional since 1996 and I have a background in early childhood education. I feel my knowledge and experience bring valuable insight to the classroom and my love and passion for young children make me an asset to our team. I understand the importance of providing a nurturing, supportive, fun, and enriching environment to prepare our children for entering Kindergarten. I feel there is nothing more gratifying than watching a young child learn and flourish and I truly feel blessed to have the opportunity each day to help my students cultivate a lifelong love for learning, a sense of self-worth, and a strong foundation for literacy and success throughout school.

I have worked in early childhood education since 2011.

My family and I live in the neighboring community of Scripps Ranch. I have two children and a husband who keep me very busy! As a family we enjoy baseball, going to the beach, and most of all, our movie nights at home.
