It’s episode 3 of The Child Care Business Podcast, and today we’re talking with Jennifer Duffield, who runs Dancing Moose Montessori. Learn how Jennifer and her family started Dancing Moose (including how they came up with the name) and how Jennifer has become an expert in hiring and building a strong child care culture that emulates her company’s core values: positive, perceptive and proactive.
From setting up regular informational interviews and creating a pipeline of potential hires to offering ongoing professional development, Jennifer has cracked the code on how to not only build a strong team, but maintain it.
Jennifer is co-founder and Executive Director of Dancing Moose Montessori, which has two locations in Utah, over 500 students and more than 100 staff! She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry (which makes her an enthusiastic fan of STEM Education). She also has an MBA from Westminster College. She oversees the day-to-day operations of all Dancing Moose locations to ensure programmatic quality and consistency.
Jennifer collaborates regularly with School Directors and Mentor Teachers at each location to evaluate how best to support the Dancing Moose team so that they are equipped to offer their very best to each student. Jennifer loves getting to know Dancing Moose children and parents, and works hard to promote a school culture that is innovative, positive and sensitive to the individual needs of students and team members.
