Hello! My name is Jenae Kleifges and I have been working in early childhood and elementary education my whole life. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and am currently working toward my Master's in School Business Management. I have previously worked as a Teacher, Center Director, Elementary Principal and in Field Operations for TLE. My husband Paul and I have two young children, Emmett and Sophia, who have been attending our center since mid-2019. I look forward to helping your child(ren) learn, play and grow at TLE @ NaperPlainfield!
