My name is Jenny Santeramo and I am the Teddies teacher. I started at Nature’s Pointe as a parent in 2019. My family and I feel so fortunate to have found a school that offers a play-based, child-centered, nature focused approach. This community is great because everyone truly cares for one another.
My husband and I live in Fishers and have five children. We have a lot of firsts this year as one daughter heads off to college, one son starts high school and one son starts kindergarten! We also have a 3rd grade boy and 3 year old girl.
I am very passionate about early childhood education and enjoy many opportunities for continuing education in the field. I have worked in early childhood for many years in a variety of settings including preschools, a licensed home childcare and as a nanny. I have my B.A. in French and will have my Associates in Early Childhood Education after finishing one science class. I enjoy children of preschool age because of their excitement for discovery and sense of wonder. I look forward to learning from and growing alongside the children this year!
I teach the Koalas class and assist with the Pandas class on Enrichment Days. My husband Mike and I are parents to twin 14 year old boys, Alex and Evan. They are graduates of NPCP. I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and 20 years of experience working with young children. This is my 10th year teaching at NPCP. The preschool years are my favorite! The children are so excited to learn new things. They have such a natural love of learning. After experiencing co-op with my own children, I know this is the best place to nurture that love and watch it grow! I am looking forward to another great year!
I’m the lead teacher for the Pandas class. I have over 25 years experience in early childhood education. I have worked with all age groups in various early childhood settings but I especially love co-op classrooms. I have worked at Nature’s Pointe Co-op for 11 years. I have a BA from Purdue University in psychology and certification in parent education and the program of West Ed. I am married and have 3 co-op children of my own. I chose co-op for my own children because I am a strong believer in play being the most important work for young children and wanted to be involved in the education of my own children. The greatest pleasure I have is seeing children’s faces light up as they learn. I also love seeing parents learn with their children!
