Meet The Owner

Mrs. Amy Egle

Hi there, I’m Amy Egle and I’m the proud owner of Juniperhaven Preschool. I have had a passion for working for children for as long as I can remember. I idolized my teachers growing up and they inspired me to get my education degree and become a middle school Language Arts teacher. Within my first year of teaching, I got the exciting news that I was expecting my first child. I decided to take a year off from the job I loved to take of my daughter. When she was a year old, I decided to take a job a part-time job at a childcare center because I wasn’t quite ready to go back to teaching in the public school quite yet. To my surprise, I loved working with that age group. I loved their personalities, seeing them learn new things and having the opportunity to create relationships with the parents. After working in a few different centers and in-homes for several years, I took what I had learned and I decided to open my own certified in-home childcare program in 2016. I had about 12-16 kids a day with 1-2 teachers working alongside me. I saw children grow from babies into toddlers and into preschools and I loved every minute.

When the pandemic hit, I saw the need for more quality childcare in my community and decided to expand my business into a childcare center.

At my center, my teachers have a passion for letting children learn through play. Ive been researching the power of play ever since I saw Bev Boss speak at a conference here in Bend in 2014. She lit my heart on fire to protect a child’s right to play. It’s what they are built to do and it supports their well rounded development cognitively and emotionally.

Please reach out with any questions you have about my center. I look forward to hearing from you.

All About Juniperhaven...

We are proud to be a play-based program where children can play and their play is valued. We now have a large – and growing – pool of evidence to show that learning through play is the best way to support learning. Children are natural scientists – they come into the world ready to experiment and learn through play. In fact, they are born with a natural curiosity and drive to learn and explore. With every tower they build and every imaginary cakes they share, with every puzzle they put together and every fort they build, their brains make important connections. As they continue to exercise their imagination or express how they feel, they grow to become empathic, creative individuals with an appetite for learning. And they use what they discover to not only adapt the structure of their brains but also strengthen the skills they need to continue being engaged, flexible learners for their whole lives.

Our teachers are play facilitators, we are experts in how to support their play and see the value in their play. We know that the block center isn’t just about building a tower but it’s about learning problem-solving skills, and math concepts like sorting and geometry. We know that the house center isn’t just about playing mom and dad or restaurant but about experimenting with adult language, being imaginative, and playful, and learning to cooperatively play with friends. We know the art center is more than making art for the fridge, it’s about expressing their ideas, fine motor skills, and creating something that is truly their own creation.
