Jerianne Gooding
Curriculum Coordinator

Hello, I am Jerianne.  I joined Sunny Day Academy as the Education Coordinator in January of 2013.  My career in early childhood education can be traced back to my family’s child care center that opened in 1973.  The appreciation I have for the care and education of children comes from the hours spent as a classroom teacher for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school age children.

I worked as an administrator in both private and corporate child care facilities. My Bachelor’s degree was earned at The Ohio State University and I completed my graduate work in early childhood education at Capella University.

The opportunity to design and instruct early childhood professional development training for adults at the local career center further ignited my passion for working with learners of all ages.  I mentor teachers in the classroom, conduct observations, guide curriculum implementation, work with licensing compliance and teach the Child Development Associates Preparation Program.  My motto is, “To create and maintain a culture where doing the right thing for children is expected and easy!”  What have you done today to make a child successful?
