    • Katlinn Ozga
      Teacher

      I am the lead teacher in the preschool room. I have had the privilege of being a part of Providence Connections since 2015, but I have 8+ years of teaching with children. I have my degree in Early Education and Child Development, and I believe children can learn while still playing and having fun! Together with a team of amazing and creative teachers, I am committed to providing your family with a loving and developmentally sound foundation for a lifetime of learning.

    • Matt Brown

      I have been here at Providence for over five years working with children ages 2 through school-aged. I currently have an Associate’s degree with a focus in child and family studies and 10+ years of experience in childcare. A few of my favorite activities to do with children is to play with them in the gym and read to them! I truly enjoy working with preschoolers and hope to build a positive relationship with your child!

I can’t wait to have a night off from cooking 😋

It seems it's making me put a name for the person I'm donating a meal to- I was hoping to donate to anyone who might need a meal through Providence. Is there a general name to use to get through this for a name/email? 🙂

Looks delish
