Everything we do at Day Early Learning is aimed at nurturing each child’s social, emotional and educational needs. Our ultimate goal is not only to prepare your child for kindergarten, but also to inspire a lifelong learning journey. Well-educated and trained teachers ensure that your child will be in the best hands possible.

Here is your chance to get to know some of our Day Early Learning team members. This week, we highlight Alora Newlon.

Which Day Early Learning center do you work at?
Patty Jischke.

What age group do you teach?
I am in an infant classroom.

How long have you worked at Day Early Learning?
I have been at Day Early Learning for almost one year.

When did you know you wanted to work with children?
I’ve kind of always known I wanted to work with kids. I became a babysitter as soon as I was old enough, then a nanny, and finally started in childcare when I was 16. It’s been an amazing experience.

How do you like to spend your free time?
I love to read, spend time with my husband and play Dungeons & Dragons.

What is/was your favorite children’s book?
Growing up my favorite children’s book was Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. My favorite children’s book now is probably There’s a Dragon in Your Book by Tom Fletcher.

What was the last moment that caused you to stop and remember why you love teaching and working with children?
An infant recently learned how to take a few steps. He just glows with pride every time he practices his walking, and I do, too!

What is your favorite thing about working at Day Early Learning?
The teamwork – everyone pulls together and helps out whenever they can. I’ve never been a part of a team with such love for each other.

What other interesting facts do you want us to know about you?
I’m starting a small side business! A&A Exotics and Rescue. We have tons of snakes, tarantulas, lizards, and tortoises. We hope to breed them, as well as take in and rehome rescues.
