Miss Violet

Violet prides herself on being a great early childhood teacher and a great mom. She has been in the childcare field for seven years, starting in her home of New York and continuing when she moved to Florida in 2013. She has a CDA credential and has worked with all early childhood ages, from newborn to five years old. She enjoys being in the childcare field because it allows her to have a fulfilling career while also having flexibility to spend time with her daughter. 

Miss Sandy

Sandy is a dedicated early childhood teacher, with over nineteen years of experience in the field and ten years of experience as a VPK teacher. She has worked at Busy Kids for 13 years! She has a degree in Early Childhood Education and a Director's Credential. She hopes to continue her education and get her Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. Sandy is married with three children - two boys and one girl. She says that she loves teaching young children because they are like sponges and can learn so much at that age.

Miss Michelle

Michelle loves Busy Kids and we love her! She has been teaching for twenty years and has been at Busy Kids for fifteen years. She has a degree in Early Childhood Education and Development. Michelle was born and raised in Highlands County and she loves how close our community is. She loves all of her students, past and present, and came up with the idea to fill ceiling tiles with hand prints of each VPK graduate.. Check them out next time you're at Busy Kids! 

Miss Jerry

Jerry is another of our highly dedicated VPK teachers. She has over 30 years of experience in early childhood education, and she has taught at Busy Kids for 14 years. She has worked with children of all ages. She loves teaching children and especially loves teaching them to reach and write. This is such an important part of early education to her because her father did not know how to read or write. Jerry takes pride in teaching children their letters and sounds, and she loves seeing their faces light up when they learn to write their name. 


"Busy Kids provided an outstanding learning experience for our family. I am thankful for their professional expertise in teaching and nurturing love in childcare. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed each day at Busy Kids and learned a lot too. I highly recommend Busy Kids as a quality center with exceptional service for all!"
