Jenni

Director

Thank you for visiting our website! I'm Miss Jenni. Here at RSG we strongly believe children flourish and learn in a  fun, clean and  engaging environment with plenty of hands-on experiences that stimulate their curiosity and natural sense of wonder. We are proud how our teachers offer a welcoming and caring atmosphere inside the classroom where children's most basic, as well as emotional, needs are met. We are convinced in building strong parent-teacher relationships and always have an open channel of communication between us to guarantee your child's care and future success as a well-rounded individual is fulfilled.


Michaela

Infant Teacher

Hello everyone, my name is Michaela Alsop. I graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with a bachelor's degree in Human Services and a concentration in Child and Family Services. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my dog, going shopping, and being surrounded by my loved ones. Working with children has given me numerous advantages, including the opportunity to watch them grow and develop into confident, self-sufficient learners, as well as building strong relationships with them.

Jennifer

Infant Teacher

Hello…I’m Ms. Jen! I am an infant/toddler teacher here at RSG. I have a background in nursing and was employed in the medical field for 20+ years.  After raising my three beautiful and talented children, I truly missed the excitement of watching the growth and development of little ones. It has been pure joy nurturing the infants and getting to know all of the families at RSG.

Joanna

Infant Teacher

Hello my name is Ms. Joanna and I am the lead infant teacher here at RSG . I have over 20+ years experience working with children from birth to school-age. I am a proud wife, mom of 2 wonderful young menand a grandma of 2 fabulous grandchildren. I have apassion for seeing children grow and learn about the

world around them. I think of a child like a rose bud. When they are born the petals are so tight, but as time goes by and the child grows the flower begins to open

and you get to see this little human evolve. That is the best gift of all.

I have also taught Kindergarten and was an Assistant Director as well. Being at RSG for 18 years has  been a wonderful learning experience as I prepare each child for Kindergarten.




Rita

Pre-K Teacher

My name is Rita Jalo. I have an associates degree in child development. I  have more than 3 years of experience working with kids around 2 years  old. I love working with kids. My favourite part of the job is watching  the kids I take care of grow up and hoping that I am able to make a  positive impact on their lives. I am a mother of 3 children. I have  enjoyed my time at Ready Set Grow and anticipate a lot of great memories  to be made here in the future.

Wafaa

Pre-K Teacher

I've been working in Early Childhood Education for over eight years. I worked at numerous preschools, including Cuyamaca College Child Development Center, but none compare to Ready Set Grow Learning Center where it has felt like a second home to me the past two years. Currently I am the lead teacher in the 3's room! I earned an Associate Degree in 2013, of which 48 units were in Early Child Education as well as an Achievement Certificate in Science Studies. In addition, I received a Bachelor's Degree in mathematical studies from my native country back in 2000. Whether it is being a  proud mother to three wonderful children or teaching a group of preschoolers, my love of children is the key to my ability to gain their trust and build a strong relationship with them. It gives me much pleasure to provide the children with a warm and nurturing environment  in which they can grow and learn most effectively.
