Hi! I’m Jennifer. In the picture above, you can see me with my son Alex. I am telling you about him because he is the reason I’m here today. When Alex was born, we received a big surprise and learned that he had Down syndrome. In those early days many people told us that his diagnosis would bring about many unexpected blessings. Well, one of those unexpected blessings was discovering my passion for early childhood education.
During Alex’s first year I made the decision to leave my corporate job so that I could be with him full time. He and I spent a lot of time with physical therapists, speech therapists, music therapist, occupational therapist and early intervention specialists. I found myself trying to learn as much as possible about early childhood development and my love for early childhood education truly blossomed. I also found myself constantly creating fun learning games and activities to help him learn and grow.
When Alex grew older and began to attend school full-time, I began working at the preschool in our church. I loved my job and found myself crafting many learning activities and games for our class. Eventually, I figured out a way for me to create those engaging activities so that you can use them in your home or school…and here I am today. I am filled with joy when I hear stories about how kids enjoy using my activities. I have been truly blessed!
If you have any ideas or request for learning products, I would love to hear them. My email address is Jennifer@earlylearningideas.com .
