Our teachers are dedicated and licensed child-care providers
Gretchen Love , Program Director
Gretchen Love is from the east coast and has over 38 years of experience in childcare. She started as a teacher in a small school teaching 2 to 5-year-olds and worked her way to a director role. With her love of caring for children, she followed her path to open and direct a back up corporate childcare center. Then after almost two decades, Gretchen moved from the east to the west coast. Where she fell in love with a little town of Pacifica and the rest is history. In her spare time, Gretchen is also a yoga teacher with a focus on children's' yoga.
"I believe children benefit from learning how to focus on breathing, how to find ways to deal with the stress in their worlds, and to find ways to get away from all the spinning that happens in their heads." ~ Gretchen Love
Christina Jackson , Teacher
Christina Jackson has been working with children since she was one herself! From babysitting for family to starting her own (with a stop in pediatric dentistry along the way!), Christina knew she had found her future when she and her husband enrolled their daughter at PCNS.
She was a frequent fill in for moms and teachers even after her daughter left for kindergarten, and while also providing childcare for school families, Christina obtained her Early Childhood Education credentials from Skyline College. We’ve been happy to have her for over five years!
Jenn Maesen , Teacher
Teacher Jenn has been in the education field for the past 15 years. She received her BA in Liberal Studies, earned her Multiple Subject teaching credential, and received her Masters in Elementary Education. She taught in Kindergarten and 1st grade for 11 years before deciding to become a stay at home mom. She was a substitute teacher at the Co-op before her oldest son graduated from PCNS and decided to take on a bigger role at the Co-op for the 2019-2020 school year as a teacher. Her goals are to create independent little learners, who love to discover the world around them in a safe and happy environment. When she isn't at school, you can find Jenn having fun with her husband and two boys.
