Shannon R.

Director

“My name is Shannon and I am the Program Director at Gilden Woods Kalamazoo! I have always had a passion for childcare and love working with children and families. I have over ten years of experience working with children of all ages in early care and preschool programs as well as in a public school setting. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Mount Olive College. I was a lead teacher in a preschool classroom for two years, during which time I was able to gain experience in childcare administration as an Assistant Director before I became a Program Director at Gilden Woods - Kalamazoo.

My daughter Isabel attends Gilden Woods and loves going to school every day and is always very excited to tell me what she did and learned that day. I feel blessed knowing that she is part of a preschool classroom where she feels accepted, loved, safe, and is constantly learning through fun and new experiences.

During my free time I love being with my family! Having lived out of state for the past several years, I am spending as much time as I can with them! I enjoy shopping and going to the beach with my daughter. On the weekends we like to spend time outside having new adventures! I also really love to read and am sharing my love of books with my daughter. My favorite childhood books are the Berenstain Bear books! We are always looking for new Berenstain Bear books to add to our collection!

I am so excited to be a part of this great childcare program and look forward to getting to know all of the families and children!”
