My name is Christine Jennings and I am so proud to be the Director here at Kiddie Academy of Pasadena. I am a true Californian, born and raised in North Hollywood California but, I’ve also spent part of my Junior High and High School years in Bangkok, Thailand. I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from California State University of Northridge. This will be my 23rd year working in the field of Early Childhood and I can definitely say that I have a true passion in working with children ages birth to Kinder. In my past roles in the field, I have developed strengths in various philosophies and curriculums of Early Childhood such as Emergent Curriculum, the RIE philosophy, Creative Curriculum, High Scope, and the Reggio Emilia philosophy. I am a big supporter of child directed/play based learning and enjoy mentoring my staff in the various ways that this can be implemented into the classroom. For my personal life, I have been married for 5 years and have a 3-year-old son that currently attends Kiddie Academy of Pasadena. I love to cook, spend time at the beach, and I’m a certified aerial fitness teacher!

My name is Susan Stubbs and I am the Assistant Director here at Kiddie Academy of Pasadena. I have worked in the field of Early Childhood for over 20 years. I received my Associate’s Degree from Citrus College and am currently working on getting my Bachelor’s Degree. In my past roles in the field, I have had experience in all roles of Early Childhood from Lead Teacher, to Assistant Director, to Director of an Infant Toddler program. I come with an abundance of experience with passion for the field and I absolutely love what I do everyday. My philosophy of Early Childhood is that we are the starters of building young minds to be successful adults. And I’m a firm believer in messy play is good play and child directed activities are the best way to learn. For my personal life, I have 2 adult children and 5 grandkids. During my spare time, I like to go on fun outings with friends. I also enjoy hiking and running.
