Jolene Thorpe
  • Associate's Degree in Applied Science Early Childhood Education

Welcome to Childcare Network #162 in Greensboro, NC! My name is Jolene Thorpe and I am the school Director. I have worked in early education for many years as both a teacher and a Director. I am super excited to be a part of the Childcare Network #162 family! My love for education was formed when I was in 3rd grade. My teacher made learning so much fun, and I was hooked from that moment on! Since then, I have been dedicated to building relationships with families, staff, and children, and striving to make a positive impact. I know that early education plays an integral role in establishing a solid foundation for your child's educational journey. Our goal for students is to foster an environment where each child can challenge themselves and achieve success. The quality I want to see emulated in my employees and staff is positivity. I want staff and children to be able to encourage each other to create a positive atmosphere. I am most excited about you joining our school family and having a great experience! Please feel free to stop in for a tour or call to speak with a member of our team. We would love the opportunity to build a long-lasting relationship with your family!
