On Wednesday, May 30th we held our pre-kindergarten graduation. Our celebration was featured in the Star Tribune. Click here to see the photos.
Our son successfully passed the public school
screening in 15 minutes, which normally takes 45 to
60 minutes. The experts said our little boy showed
a top level of education for his age.
Executive Program Director
Heidi brings two decades of experience to Kinderberry Hill and opened the doors to Kinderberry Hill Eden Prairie in 2008. She couldn’t be more proud to be part of such an amazing community and is honored to work with the children, families, and teachers in her program. Heidi is the proud mom of a Kinderberry Hill alum, and credits his early years at Kinderberry Hill for her son’s successes. Heidi first joined our team in 1996 and holds a degree in early childhood education from the Illinois Valley Community College.
Whether Jackie is visiting classrooms, posing questions to the children and encouraging thought-provoking conversations about the lessons they are learning, or skillfully overseeing day-to-day operations, Jackie’s expertise is top-notch. Her two little girls join mom at school, and their smiles are contagious just like their mom’s. Jackie joined Kinderberry Hill in 2001. She majored in elementary education with a kindergarten endorsement from St. Could State.
As our school nurse, Taylor thoroughly enjoys serving as a resource for your child’s health and wellness. Taylor graduated from the College of Saint Catherine – St. Paul in 2010 with her bachelors degree and public health nurse license. She joined Kinderberry in March of 2016. Community health has always been of great interest to Taylor, especially school nursing. The notion of focusing more on ‘How can we keep our kids healthy’, rather than nursing them back to health after being ill, is something she feels very passionate about.
I am happy at school because we play outside on the playground.
