Bumblebee Room Teachers

Sarah Jensen

I am Sarah Jensen, lead teacher for the Bees Room. I have worked here at Little Beginnings for many years, primarily as a lead toddler teacher, then a floater, and now in the Bees Room. I love spending time with your children and sharing my love for learning and nature with them!
My husband, John, and I have two children… Ashlyn (2005) and Landan (2010). We live just outside of Hastings and love to go fishing and camping as a family every summer. We also do a lot of soccer; both children play for Hastings traveling soccer teams. Ashlyn loves soccer and art. Landan loves hiking and the outdoors, soccer and gymnastics. I love everything outdoors, like camping, kayaking, hiking and exploring. That has led me to my new love of woodworking. I feel my best when I am designing or creating something new for someone.

Welcome To Our Class!

We are excited to be working with your family! This time in a child’s life is full of new experiences, challenges, and successes. We will work together to create a great each day at Little Beginnings.


During your child’s time in the Bumblebee Room, they will start to practice group times, create lots of art, listen to stories, and learn through active play.
During the week, we will focus on things like sign language and Spanish, manners, literacy, math, and physical education.
Some special days in this room include Bible Time and Nature Room Time.


This classroom is full of transitions and new experiences. We will work together as your child explores things like spoons and open cups at the table, cots for nap time, working together with friends, and using words.
It will be a fun adventure together!
