Laura Nelson

Hi, my name is Laura Johnson. I am the lead teacher of the Bumblebees. I have been married to my husband, Jef, for thirty-five+ years. We have two grown children. My son is working on his PhD in Philosophy. He is married and currently lives with his wife in Germany. My daughter is the mother of my two beautiful grandsons. She is married and is blessed to be a stay-at-home mom. I have a lot of hobbies, too many my husband says. A few of them include writing, reading, and gardening. I absolutely love my job. I adore the children in my care and find it very satisfying to watch them learn and grow. I can’t imagine doing anything else with my life. Thank you so much for allowing me to take care of your precious children.

Bumblebee Room Info

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, Nature Room, and Movie Day.


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!
