My mission for Little Makers Preschool is to provide children with a place to learn where they feel comfortable, safe, and accepted. I provide a dynamic curriculum that I tailor to the ever-changing needs of the children at my school. You can read more about my curriculum here.
Hi! My name is Jemia Moser, and I’m a teacher and child-care provider in West Asheville. I grew up with a big family in the Wisconsin countryside and have been here in Asheville since November 2011. I love gardening, music, and cooking, and I’m passionate about teaching children.
Some of my first memories are of helping my “Papa” in the garden. He’d lead me to the garden, armed with a hoe and his re-cycled lunch box filled with dozens of packets of seeds. I’d put the seeds in the ground just right and pat soil over them. We’d water and wait. Gardening taught me patience. It taught me that food takes time and hard work – so do flowers.
Watching things grow was one of my favorite things to do in the garden. This practice of patience and loving care has guided me on my path as a teacher and childcare provider.
Over the years, watching children grow and fostering their development has become a passion of mine. Gardening remains deeply rooted in my bones. It’s just one of the activities that is central to teaching the children at my school.
