Proving the fun, loving, educational care your child deserves!
Ms. Amanda has been with us working with various age groups since 2018. She has the requirements to work as Teacher. She is a current college student with a Registry level of 8 and we are very excited to see how far she has come and how far she will go! Knowledge is power! Her free time is spent with family and friends, which includes her daughter Hailey that also attends our center.
The infamous... Mr. Clint
Mr. Clint is our behind the scenes office admin. He handles all of our booking-keeping and financial aspects. He is also Ms. Jesse's husband. And the trouble maker in the building! He needs time outs more than the kids some times... or at least reminders not to encourage the kids to play chase in the classroom or throw the balls indoors.
Jessica H. (Ms. Jesse) - Director/ Owner
Despite a bad previous experience working in a childcare center and feeling like it was not for me, I ultimately decided I could do it better myself and opened my small in-home center where I truly learned that this IS for me. After several years, I had saved enough and expanded to open the larger center in order to better serve more families. I am a PDAS trainer (can train in almost any area), trainer of Child Abuse and Neglect prevention, and a Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention trainer. I have my Infant and Toddler, Preschool, Administrative, and Leadership Credentials. I hold an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education, and am eagerly yearning to get back in and finish the last couple of classes for my Bachelors! My husband, Clint, and I have 3 children of our own, Katelynn, Kayla, and Andrew, in addition to my nephew Hunter. We also have 5 fur babies and a hedgehog. We moved here to Wi from Florida for a change in early 2000's and boy did we find it!
Ms. Katelynn has been around since Playful Hearts began as an in-home center; she is Ms Jesse's eldest daughter. Katelynn has her CNA license and worked with the elderly population during high school. She officially started working for the center in May 2017 before heading off to college to complete her BSN. She can be found helping out at the center and in the office. She has her Lead Teacher qualifications and is a Registry level 12.
Mrs. Sami C
Mrs. Sam brought her daughter to us for 2 years before she had a second child and decided to pursue a more fulfilling career in Early Childhood education. She has been a welcome addition to our team since April 2014. She has completed her Infant and Toddler credential, her Preschool credential recently, and currently holds a level 11 Registry certificate. She is quiet at first, but is always very friendly and eager to help! She loves to get to teach the kids and help make a difference. She is the Lead Teacher in our one year old classroom. She would love to meet Kesha one day! And if she could be any animal she would be a white tiger.
Some of our Fun and Shenanigans!
Prior joining our team in 2014, Mrs. Anna had been bringing her two children to us before she decided she was ready for a career change and we mutually decided she needed to join us! She enjoys working with kids because she gets to be a big kid herself! She has her Infant and Toddler Credential and is looking to further pursue her college education in this field. She and her husband, Craig, have 3 children. In her spare time she enjoys doing her nails.
Ms. Kayla is a recent high school graduate who joined us in 2020, although she grew up around the center being Ms. Jesse's 2nd child. She has a great love for children and is a current college student double majoring in PT and early childhood. In high school she took the required college course work to enable her to be a lead teacher at the center. She can be found in the 4K classroom and helping out in various rooms of the center. When she is not at the center, she can be found working at her second job or hanging out with friends. She is currently a Registry level 7.
