Jennifer Gott doesn’t need coffee. In fact, the Montbello neighborhood educator (in Denver, Colorado) loves babies and toddlers so much, that even when they don’t quite make it to the toilet while potty training, she feels nothing but proud of them.
“When kids have that look of accomplishment on their face when they do something they didn’t know they could—that’s why I do what I do,” Jennifer says. “I love making a difference in their lives and providing them with a safe place to go every day.”
Jennifer says that because she doesn’t have kiddos of her own, it was important to her to build a career where she could spend time helping young children learn, play, and grow.
“I have always wanted to run my own business, and working with little ones every day is the perfect opportunity for me,” she said.
Before joining MyVillage, Jennifer worked in large preschool centers as a lead preschool teacher. She experienced burnout, which is common among childcare workers. After spending some time working as a personal assistant, Jennifer decided to go into business for herself with MyVillage’s support. MyVillage was just what she needed to start and run her own in-home preschool in Colorado.
“I was immediately drawn to MyVillage, so it didn’t take much to get me on board,” Jennifer recalls. Right away, she says she could tell the community was “amazing.”
“I remember thinking, how wonderful to have a platform where people get the tools they need and the education they need to open an in-home childcare business,” Jennifer says. “I didn’t realize there was a business out there to help give people like me all the tools. I thought it was so wonderful that MyVillage was there to help me succeed, step by step.”
Without MyVillage, Jennifer said running her own home-based program would feel lonely.
“The community aspect of it is huge,” she says. “I love being able to work with kids every day but the support I feel from the MyVillage community is what allows me to not feel burnout. I can give my all to the kids because of the MyVillage community.”
