Jeanette Bieber

Jeanette is a dedicated and caring professional. Her knowledge regarding the business end of early childhood education paired with her genuine care for children makes Jeanette an ideal candidate as Administrator.

Under her leadership, Little Village has achieved a 3-Star rating in the Step up to Quality initiative set forth by Ohio legislature of preschools.
