Welcome to Center for Early Learning!

Welcome! We are excited you and your child will be a part of the Center for Early Learning at JES. We thank you for your trust as we partner to set the foundation for your learning journey. We offer fun and hands-on opportunities for learning that build creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.

Did you know that 90% of human brain growth occurs before age five, which has a lasting impact on a child’s ability to learn and succeed in school and life? The quality of a child’s experiences in the first few years of life help shape how their brain develops. By enrolling your child in preschool, you are supporting that growth, and we thank you.

I am honored to serve as the Director of Early Learning for Jefferson City Schools. Our goal is to make preschool an exciting place for students to learn, explore, grow and create memories that will last a lifetime. My door is always open if ever you have a concern or question. One of my goals is to serve children, families, and the community by being accessible and resourceful. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at We look forward to a great year with you and your child!
