Jessica Crouse - Toddler Teacher/Assistant Administrator
Executive Administrator of Small Wonders & Greenford Administrator
I’ve been with Small Wonders since August of 2011, not long after Leslie opened the first location. I graduated from YSU with a PreKindergarten degree, and have also furthered my education by taking online classes through the University of Cincinnati. I love seeing the children grow and change through their years with us, especially the ones that start as a baby and leave for kindergarten. I also love to see when them years later after they have grown up, to see the great people they have become. Outside of work, my family and I like to spend time boating and four-wheeling. I also coach elementary school cheerleading.
School Age Teacher
I started at Small Wonders September 2017. It has been a wonderful experience getting to know everyone and creating a bond with the children. I plan to pursue my degree towards being a teacher or administrator. Outside of work and in my free time I love to swim, fish and have bonfires. Thank you all for allowing me to be apart of your children's lives. I hope to see more of you enroll at Small Wonders.
I graduated from Springfield High School in 2015. Previously I worked as an assistant teacher to a preschool class. It is my plan that each child enjoys learning and has a greater understanding of the lessons taught. I have a huge love of reading and I can’t wait to inspire your children as well. I am also planning activities to encourage the development each child’s creative skills and interests. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at any time. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your children's growth.
