    Welcome to the Salamander Classroom. 

    Our goal is to provide a classroom where imagination and knowledge can be explored and nurtured, and where play and learning are intertwined. We have adapted The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool; which is a comprehensive early childhood educational system that has been shown to promote the cognitive, language, social/emotional, and physical development of young children through play and activities. In addition, throughout the week there will be special classes scheduled including: Nature Center, Gym time and Library. Also, once a month we will have Music and Movement and Library Corner.

    Our classroom has an “open door” policy if you would like to join us for the morning or visit in the afternoon. We ask that you are ICHAT’d (background check) through the main office prior to visiting.  Please plan ahead because the ICHAT process usually takes about 2 weeks. This is also required for anyone attending Field trips and  class celebrations.

Welcome to the Salamander Classroom! My name is Mrs. Jaime Jagodzinski, students and parents may call me Mrs. J, it's a lot easier. I have worked for Paddock Early Childhood Center since 2004 and took a year and half off in 2013 to be with family. I have my Associates Degree in Early Childhood. My first class of students that I taught back in 2004 are entering their Junior year of high school and my hope is to be here to see your child graduate from Milan.

Mr. J and I have no children of our own but are the best aunt and uncle to 3 nieces and 4 nephews. Family is very important to us both. We are also HUGE MICHIGAN FANS!!! GO BLUE! My husband coaches Varsity and JV football, Middle School Track as well as being a Special Education Teacher Consultant for Saline.

I am excited in getting to know your child and all of you. I see a bright and fun school year with a ton of learning, playing and best of all LOVE involved in each day we are together.

Hello, I'm Chistine Allen aka Ms. Christine. I grew up in Milan, the oldest of five children, after moving from Royal Oak when I was in 4th grade. After high school, I attended CMU with a focus in biology. I worked in a variety of capacities in the medical field over many years, was home with my family for a few then joined PECC in the spring of 2018. I've loved the staff and true feeling of community at Paddock and PECC in the time my children have been here and am so honored to be a part of it. This will be my second year in the Salamander room. 
 
My husband Adam and I have been married 13 years and have three children, Quentin, Kyra, and Paige. My stepson, Tyler got married this summer.  I love spending time outdoors, sharing new experiences and learning moments, being creative, and making great memories with them. I am so grateful and looking forward to doing the same with  Mrs. J, Ms. Rhonda and your precious one! Thank you for the opportunity!
