Molly Westerman : Assistant Teacher

Molly Westerman

Assistant Teacher

Hello, my name is Molly Westerman “Ms. Molly”

As an assistant teacher and a mother myself, I am aware how much every parent wants the caring, loving, nurturing environment for their children, especially when it comes to a childcare facility. I am excited about both the challenges and rewards of being a part of your child’s future, and I am looking forward to working with all the parents on establishing positive relationships. Trust, respect, and understanding are vital parts of these relationships; when parents and caregivers are on the same page, everyone benefits – especially the children. I am a strong proponent of an open-door policy and invite each and every parent to come talk to me about their concerns and desires for their children.
