Meet Our Director: Kelly Raggo
My name is Kelly Raggo. I grew up in Sarasota, Florida, but recently moved with my family to the UP from Woodland Park, Colorado, where I liked to wander in the woods, kayak, fish, and play in the snow. We came here looking for even more snow and fewer people. We feel like we’ve scored on both points! I have been leading early childhood programs for over 30 years. From Florida and Colorado to the Bavarian Region of Germany, I have always maintained a commitment to providing the highest quality care and education for young children. Beyond basic care, I encourage practices that lay the groundwork for a curious and optimistic outlook, and a love of learning that will last a lifetime. In our spare time, my husband, son, our future daughter-in-law, the dogs, and I have been having fun snowmobiling, fishing, and boating, and loving the forests, lakes, and beauty of this amazing place!
