A Message from Teacher Kim

"As people enter Jack and Jill, it is my hope for them to find an atmosphere that is warm and engaging for themselves and their children. Over the years, many families have built life-long friendships that endure through every stage of development in their children’s lives."

Meet Teacher Kim


  • Jack & Jill is a place where children learn through play and adults learn alongside them. It’s also been a great place for me to connect with other parents. It’s been a good community for our whole family. One of my children had Teacher Kim all 3 years. The other child had Miss Madelyn for 1 year, while Teacher Kim was on sabbatical, and Teacher Kim. While their styles were different they were both wonderful teachers – inspiring, patient, creative and beloved by the children.

  • My husband and I believe one of the most important attributes of a preschool is that our sons gain the trust and respect for their first teacher. Teacher Kim surpasses any expectations we had. Our twin boys who were extremely attached to mom gained a love and respect for Teacher Kim that we whole heartedly believe increased their self confidence and will translate to an easy transition into kindergarten and the years of new teachers and learning to come.

  • When I first met Teacher Kim, I thought to myself “this woman is so patient and so kind…. I could stand to learn a thing or two from her!” And so I joined my first Co-op experience. The family life feeling that surrounds me and my family at Jack & Jill cannot be replaced. Friendships have developed, and not just the kiddo’s! With my first son, I worked full time. Now with the opportunity to be at home with my second, the co-op life is just perfect for us both. All of us working together for the same goal; our children. It’s a great feeling and a great “club” to belong too!
