Little Planet Preschool Director:

Hi, I am Ms. Emma and I am so thrilled to be the Director at Little Planet Preschool.  I received my formal education at Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island earning a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Special Education.  I have enjoyed working with children from infant through first grade for many years.  I am excited to bring my education, years of experience, and creativity to Little Planet Preschool to create an atmosphere that fosters a love of learning and provides a solid foundation on which to build long past pre-school.  Outside of the classroom, I enjoy watching the sunset, going to the beach, traveling, running, scrapbooking, cooking, and watching the Boston sports teams!  I am looking forward to partnering with you and your child as we all learn and grow together!

Ms. Sarah

Lead Teacher

Hi Everyone! My name is Sarah, I have been in Early Childhood Education for over 15 years. I received my teaching certification from Vanguard University of Southern California and my CDA from North Shore Community College. What I enjoy most about teaching is seeing how much the children can learn and grasp in such a short period of time. I love to get messy with art, try out new science experiments and incorporate fun into letter and number recognition. In my free time I enjoy kayaking, fishing, camping and traveling.

Ms. Caroline


Hi Everyone! My name is Caroline and I am so excited to work with you all! I am a fun, loving, happy go-lucky person! I have been working with children since I was in High School. I received my EEC license to teach infants, toddlers, and preschool in 2016. In may of 2022 I graduated from Framingham State University with a Bachelors of Science in Child and Family Studies with minors in Sociology and Diversity Studies. I enjoy working with children and helping them learn, grow, and understand the world around them. Outside of the classroom I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and dogs! I also enjoy dancing and shopping. You can also find me teaching swim lessons at Little Flippers!

Ms. Jackie


Hi Everyone! My name is Jackie, I have been an Early Childhood Educator for over 23 years. I have experience woking with children ages infants through 5 year old. I received my lead teaching certification from Middlesex Community College in Lowell. What I enjoy most about teaching is seeing how much the children learn and grow through playing in the classroom. I love painting with children and getting messy at the art table. Outside of the classroom I enjoy reading, hiking, cooking, and going to the gym. I have two children of my own and 3 grandchildren and 1 on the way and I can’t wait.

Ms. Sadie


Hi, I’m Miss Mercedes also known as Miss Sadie! I’ve been working with children for 13 years. Although Preschool is my favorite age group, I have lots of experience working with newborns up to 16 years olds. It’s been a few years since I’ve been in a traditional classroom setting but; I’ve worked with the company Care@Work providing families with backup childcare as well as running Pop Up Daycares. I received my Early Education Certificate at Bunker Hill Community College and plan to further my education. I was a gymnast up until I graduated from high school and believe movement is an essential key to learning, which is why I’ve also joined the team at Sweet Peas as a Gymnastics Instructor. When I am not working you can often find me; crocheting or doing anything art related, cooking or trying new foods, watching movies, doing action sports, and adventuring anywhere and everywhere!
