Ms. Emma

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 / 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. Sadie

Lead Teacher

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!

Ms. Jamie

Lead Teacher

Hello everyone my name is Ms. Jamie. I am super excited to be your child’s teacher here at Little Planet Preschool. I have been working in the childcare field for 8 years. I have worked with all age groups from infants to 5 years old. I have found my love for preschool by getting the opportunity to explore all age groups, this age group is just amazing. Each child is different and the stories they tell is what make me smile each day. Within the classroom I love to do art and teach them new lessons they may not know a lot of information about. I am currently still in school to complete my director certification at Middlesex Community College. I received my EEC certification from Fisher College. When I am not teaching your children I am teaching dance. I have been a dancer for over 24 years and just started teaching three years ago. My passion is teaching either in the classroom or at dance class. In my free time I enjoy shopping, exploring new cities, spending time with my family and friends, and trying new restaurants and food.

I have two children of my own and 3 grandchildren and 1 on the way and I can’t wait.
