COVID-19 Update

During this challenging time, St. Paul Daycare's focus is on supporting our families, our employees and the local community in which we operate. We have successfully worked to minimize disruptions caused by COVID-19 coronavirus, while at the same time acting responsibly to do what we can to prevent further spread of the virus. We will continue to closely monitor and assess the ever evolving situation and will be diligent about communicating on important issues. ​The only people entering our building are our staff, the church staff and the children currently enrolled. Everyone is also required to wear a mask upon entry to the building.

For the protection of our children and staff, we are not providing in-person tours of our center until the State of Illinois moves into and stays in Phase 5. For a virtual tour, please contact us.

Where the Passion Begins

 

MRS. SARAH

Center Director and Floater Teacher

Hello! My Name is Mrs. Sarah and I am the Director and classroom teacher here at St. Paul. While the majority of my day is spent in the office I do spend time in each classroom every day to assist our teachers and be with the children. I have been here at St. Paul since March of 2014. Before that I was a classroom teacher and acting director at an early childhood center that was NAEYC accredited for over 8 years. In my spare time I enjoy decorating my new house, doing DIY home improvements, going on walks with my dog, Clark, and spending time with my family.  For most of my life I have been a Chicago Cubs fan and I try to go to as many games a year that I can! Go Cubs Go!  I graduated from Kendall College in 2015 with a Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Administration.

MS. MAGGY

Assistant Director and Preschool Classroom Lead Teacher

Hello!  My name is Ms. Maggy. I am the Preschool teacher and Assistant Director here at St. Paul. I have been working at St. Paul since April of 2015, and feel that the staff, students, and families here are like a second family to me! Someone once told me that if you like what you do, you never have to work a day in your life, and that's how I feel when I'm here. I love spending my day in the classroom, and couldn't have found a better center to teach at!  In my personal time, I love spending time with my beautiful daughter, Annabelle, my amazing son Jackson,  and my fiancé Aaron! We enjoy going to the zoo and different museums together. I also love 🐱cats, Starbucks, Harry Potter and online shopping!! My personal goal for the school year is to build strong relationships with the families in my care, even with Covid-19 complicating normal interactions with the parents.  I completed my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education Administration at Kendal College in Fall of 2018 and I am now attending National Louis to complete my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Administration.
