Our Team

Playwise teachers are degreed and have years of experience working with young children.  All staff members have undergone CPR/First Aid certification and thorough background checks.  We implement low child-to-teacher ratios, with at least two teachers in each classroom. Our teachers communicate regularly with families to keep them up-to-date on classroom goals and activities.  We work closely with our students' families to address each child's specific academic and social needs.

 

Through years of experience and ongoing continuing education, we use our extensive knowledge of early childhood development to facilitate each student’s learning.  Our teachers have an innate ability to empathize with children and understand that above all else, children need to be heard, respected and loved.

Meet the Director

Jodi Rocco

"I have always had a natural passion to teach.  My mother was a teacher, and her enthusiasm for teaching was undoubtedly passed on to me.  Although I originally chose a career path in business, I feel that life has a way of leading you in the right direction.  Eleven years ago, I began my second career in early childhood education, and I knew that I had found my true calling.  Teaching young children has been the most rewarding job I have experienced in my lifetime, other than being a mom.  After working at Playwise Preschool Academy for five years, I was presented with the opportunity to carry on what the school’s founder and previous director had built over the past 15 years.  I am honored to have the opportunity to use my background in business and education to continue the legacy of Playwise Preschool Academy in the Huntersville community for years to come.  Thank you for trusting Playwise to help your child reach his/her greatest potential!"
