Donna

School Director

My name is Donna and I’m the school director of Front Range Early Learning Center. As a resident of Reunion, I am very excited to be working with children and families from the community that I live in!

I have been married since 1980 to my husband, Larry. We have two grown children and four beautiful grandchildren. We enjoy football (Broncos, of course!) and hiking in the beautiful Colorado outdoors!

I began my career in early childhood education in 1982, as a preschool teacher. I soon realized that working with children, families, and teachers was my passion. I have over 30 years of experience as a director, trainer and mentor for schools in both Alaska and Colorado. In 2007 I helped open this school. It was one of the most exciting times of my career!

I studied Early Childhood Education at the University of Alaska Anchorage and completed my Colorado director certification through the Community College of Aurora. I continued my studies at Front Range Community College.

I strongly believe that quality early childhood education programs help children develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Each child is unique. Each child is competent. Each child deserves the opportunity to discover their world and their individual talents through active hands-on learning experiences. That is what we will strive to provide to Front Range Early Learning Center.

Kim

Assistant Director

My name is Kim. I have my Associates degree in Early Childhood Education from Arapahoe Community College and am pursuing my Early Childhood Teaching Licensing from Metropolitan State College of Denver.

I began working in childcare in 2008. I chose to become a teacher because I love watching children explore their interests, watching them grow and develop as little adults, and watching each child reach the ah-ha moment in a provocation.

I have two wonderful boys, Aiden and Collin. Aiden was born in 2005 and Collin in 2010. As a family we enjoy being outdoors hiking, camping, four wheeling, snowboarding or dirt bike riding are just a few of our favorite activities. I also enjoy line dancing in my free time.

I look forward to getting to know your little one and family.
