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.

Purdue Early Care & Education Center.

I am in an infant classroom.
How long have you worked at Day Early Learning?
I have been at Day Early Learning for six years.
When did you know you wanted to work with children?
I knew I wanted to work with children when I became a cousin for the first time at the age of 6. I loved holding my cousin and taking care of them. As they got older, always enjoyed teaching them new skills.
How do you like to spend your free time?
I like to go hiking with my family and golden doodle Wrigley. We love to take the jeep when we go hiking with the top off. After hiking, we like to find a local ice cream spot to get a treat.
What is/was your favorite children’s book?
I have always loved the Franklin books and the Froggy books.
What was the last moment that caused you to stop and remember why you love teaching and working with children?
One of my favorite moments that has happened often over the past few weeks is the excitement my class gets when I enter after my lunch break. They are always full of excitement, smiles, waving hello and blowing kisses.
What is your favorite thing about working at Day Early Learning?
I feel like Day Early Learning has provided me with positive inspiration to grow in my career and as a teacher within the center.
