Jessica Stanley has been in the field of Early Childhood Education since 1997. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in Early Childhood Education from the University of California, Riverside. After graduating from college, she worked for a short stint at a preschool in Orange County before stumbling upon Newport Coast Child Development Preschool. At the time of her hire in 1998, the campus was just a dirt lot, but the idea of being a part of something from its conception was too exciting to pass up. During the school’s first years she worked as an Assistant Teacher, Break Teacher and Lead Teacher before becoming the Assistant Director in 2002; she stepped into her current role as Director in 2004. Mrs. Jessica believes strongly that a high quality preschool is made of the industry’s best teachers, rich curriculum that engages curious and active learners in a clean and safe environment. She continues to actively collaborate with the founder to ensure the school’s direction aligns with Mrs. Jarrett’s vision. Mrs. Jessica resides in San Clemente with her husband and two boys. She enjoys crafting and spends a lot of time at the beach with her family. She is an avid sailor who lived/ traveled on a boat for over four years.
