MEET OUR EARLY EDUCATION COORDINATOR
Early Education Coordinator
We are so excited to introduce Laura Walser as our Early Childhood Education Coordinator. Laura has years of experience in the classroom as a preschool and kindergarten teacher and also brings a plethora of leadership experience. She works directly with our teachers to ensure they are supported in early childhood education.
“My name is Laura Walser and I am the Early Education Coordinator at Cultivate Mankato. I am from Minnesota Lake. I graduated from Maple River Schools, then got my Early Childhood Education degree from Minnesota State University Mankato. I worked at Maple River for 14 years as Kindergarten teacher and then Early Childhood Director.
Through my experience in working with children and being a parent, I have established a passion for social/emotional development and the important role it plays in laying the foundation for a child's life. It is so incredible to think of the impact we as early childhood care providers can have on children...it's an amazing feeling to know that our work truly makes a difference! I am thrilled to be part of curriculum development and ensure best practices with the team at Cultivate Mankato. I strive to provide the staff with the competencies, support and confidence they need to create a positive learning environment! I also enjoy collaborating with families and the community to empower them as well, in meeting the needs of young children.”
