 Jess
Owner

Hi! My name is Jessica Moy, I am a local mom to 2 beautiful little girls and am the owner of Love to Learn Playhouse.  I have worked in the early childhood education field for over 20 years and have always dreamed of opening my own play place.

 

Early childhood education has always been my calling and I am so thankful for all of the amazing learning experiences I have had throughout the years.  In my most recent position I worked as a classroom observer for the National Institute of Early Education Research at Rutgers University and the NJ Center for Quality Ratings at William Paterson University. Prior to that I was the Executive Director of a non-profit preschool and child care center for many years.

It has been such an incredible experience working with our amazing instructors to design a safe, warm learning environment for our little ones to grow and to be able to share in their learning experiences.

Miss Jules
Head Instructor

Hi there! My name is Julianne Yetka, I am the proud mother of a wonderful daughter, Lily, and a beautiful baby boy, Mikey. I grew up in Leonardo most of my life and still consider it my home. Growing up I enjoyed babysitting for neighborhood kids and younger cousins. I was involved in cheerleading from a young age and I’m still that outgoing kid at heart. I married into a family with 9 nieces and nephews with a wide age range. Interacting with them as they’ve grown has inspired me to follow my true calling, starting a career in early childhood development. There isn’t anything that brings me more joy then interacting with kids and encouraging them to express themselves through play. I look forward to being a part of this experience between you and your child!

Miss Tiffany
Instructor

Hi! My name is Tiffany Noonan. I am an mom of two teenage daughters and the coolest aunt to 8 nieces and nephews. I grew up locally and enjoy all the experiences the area has to offer. For the majority of my adult life I was in the salon/spa industry. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I came to realize that it was time for a change and some fun! I tapped into my inner child and decided to make some new friends. When I heard about Love to Learn Playhouse I thought this would be something amazing! I believe children have so much to learn and discover.  They are these little humans who we can help learn to enjoy life, smile, laugh, make friends, and introduce them to a gentle learning experience where they can be themselves and have fun!

Miss Stephanie

Miss Jenn
Instructor

 

Hello!  My name is Miss Jenn and I am the proud mother of three beautiful kiddos ages 5, 7, and 12.  I have always been surrounded with children including my 6 nieces and nephews and now 6 Great nieces and nephews!  I find the field of early childhood education to be extremely satisfying and absolutely love watching our earliest learners grow and become more and more curious.

 

I graduated with my BA from Kean University, and then attended the New Pathways to Teaching program with NJCU.  I started in the field of early childhood education 12 years ago as a Pre-K teacher in South Jersey, and I never looked back!  After relocating back to Monmouth County, I took on the role as an Executive Director at a local non-profit preschool & childcare center.  Recently I have decided to take a step back from my full-time position to allow more time for my 3 very busy children, but I am very much looking forward to some part-time playing and exploring with the children and families at Love to Learn Playhouse!
