Janel A. Work

Janel A. Work is first and foremost a loving mother. Janel's oldest son, Maxwell, was then born shortly after and he has enriched her life and keeps her smiling each day. It was due to his birth that Janel decided to take a hiatus from public education and pursue Early Childhood Education. Then in January of 2011, the family was also blessed with their new arrival of Nathaniel (Nate). Then they were blessed with their final addition of Arianna. The family lives in Kimberton with their two dogs Momo and Lucy. Janel graduated from Susquehanna University in 2002 with a B.A. in Communications, Theater Arts and Education. While working in the public school system, she continued her education to complete her M.A. at Villanova in Education.  She also has pursued additional graduate education in ECE from Shippensburg University. After achieving her degree, Janel has worked as a daycare director and public school educator. She has taught at Owen J.Roberts School District, Reading Area School District, and in Montgomery County School System in Maryland. She was also an adjunct professor at Montgomery College. Not only did she teach, but she helped write standards-based curriculum for the school districts and several virtual charter schools. As an educator, Janel believes in enriching each child’s life and meeting their individual needs to help them flourish. Janel A. Work loves Kiddie Academy in Phoenixville and does not consider it a job but a wonderful lifestyle. She believes the center continues to redefine the standards for childcare in the area. Plus, it is a wonderful resource center to her beloved town. Janel is proud of the accomplishments at the ever growing and changing center.

Laura Laum, Director

My name is Laura Laum and I am the Center Director at Kiddie Academy of Phoenixville! I have lived in the Phoenixville area since 2001 where I attended Valley Forge University and received my Bachelor's Degree and certification in Early Childhood Education. My passion is to help all children to succeed and I love supporting families and teachers in this process! I live in East Coventry with my husband, Jeff, our children, Emilie, Piper and Cole and our many pets. My family is my inspiration and the reason I am committed to providing a dependable Early Childhood Education program. My husband is a retired veteran of the United States Marine Corps and he has shown me the value of respect and reliability. My thirteen year old is an artist and she has taught me to see the best in the world and the full potential of people. My ten year old is inquisitive and takes the time to explore and understand her world. My one year old is enthusiastic about everything he does. I feel that by providing a consistent, high quality education, children will grow up with a positive attitude, curiosity and the confidence to advance in life. I am excited to utilize my 20 years of experience in the field as I lead Kiddie Academy of Phoenixville as Center Director and look forward to partnering with you all throughout this journey.
