Hello, I am Jennifer Mauzy a wife and mom of 4 children, grandma of 4 grandchildren. I consider my family my biggest accomplishment. I am excited everyday to come into work at Little Pioneers, these children are my passion and my extended family. I started working with children over 30 years ago at a preschool center in Santee. A few years later I started a licensed home family daycare. Now that my kids are all grownup, I have the opportunity to give back and make a difference in the lives of the kids here at LPP.
