Ms. Rouse's goal for Jefferson Park are to expand the child care services offered to the Jefferson Park Community. She wants to further the "Family like" enviroment that is created by our faculty and staff. Her vision for the center is as follows:
"Jefferson Park Preschool Program is a place where parents, staff and care givers are collectively and enthusiastically involved in the education and development of preschool age children. Jefferson Park is a warm and clean environment; that nurtures positivity and love not just within the classroom by throughout the entire community. We understand the profound impact we have on children and families of our community and we strive to be excellent in everything we do! "
