Emily Penwell

Emily Penwell has been in the early childcare field for about 36 years. She started teaching hands-on and now she has her CDA!

She loves working with children and has four children of her own. All of them are grown up and have moved out – all four have wildly different careers: one is a nurse, another is a teacher, one does hair, and the other is in the Army! A fun fact about Emily is that she does not like pizza and her husband is a US postal service driver. Her favorite book is the Very Hungry Caterpillar! We are so lucky to have Emily on our team.

Cora Bogdan

After earning her bachelor’s degree in Early Elementary Education, Cora started her career in Elementary in 2002 and found her passion early on for childcare as an infant teacher. From infants to school age children, Cora worked closely with almost every age group before becoming regional director in 2011. As regional director of the Cleveland area Nest Schools, Cora enjoys working with directors and teachers to help ensure that they provide the best care possible for every family they serve.

Cora lives in Cleveland with her husband and two children. In her free time, she enjoys gardening, cooking, and baking. Her favorite childhood book is The Little House on the Prairie because she read it to her children when they were growing up, and it is now a family favorite for her own daughters! We are thrilled to have Cora on our team!
