Jenn Jacobsen – Ant Room Teacher

Hello! My name is Jenn Jacobsen and I am the lead teacher for the Ant Room. I am so excited to get to know your children and family.
I graduated with a B.S. in Early Education from UW-Stout. My husband and I are currently expecting our first child this summer.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy crafting, coaching, blogging, and reading. Working with children is a passion of mine, especially infants!
I’m looking forward to providing a safe and welcoming environment for your children, and watching them grow here at Little Beginnings!

Becky Freeman – Ant Room Experienced Aide

My name is Ms. Becky and I have been with Little Beginnings since September of 2006. I work with the infants in the Ant Room. I have two grown daughters, four granddaughters, and one grandson. I also worked as a nurses aide and TMA at Augustana Health Care Center for eleven years. I loved working with geriatrics, and now I love working with babies.
I assure you, your little ones are in a loving and caring environment with the best care available (other then your own of course). Thanks for giving us that responsibility every day! I love my job!
