  •  Jordyn

    Jordyn

    Assistant Director
    Jordyn has been working in Early Childhood Education and child care for over 3 years with prior experience as an Assistant Director as well as a School Administrative Assistant. She received her degree from Auburn University with a Bachelors in Art and Marketing. Learning is FUN and every day at school should be too. It is important to create a learning environment that is warm, inviting, and exciting. Children are naturally bright, creative, and inquisitive, and are able to understand more than we tend to give them credit for. They are little sponges just waiting to absorb knowledge — and it is up to us as educators and parents to figure out the most effective way to do that for each individual child. Jordyn loves all things art, especially painting. She loves to travel and get outside — whether hiking, enjoying the beach or lake, swimming, or just walking her dog, Milo! She loves to live life in a way that is fun, creative, and always a little bit silly.
