Employee of the Month
January's Employee of the Month is Julie Voigt!
Julie has been part of our Polly Panda team for 7 years. However, she has been part of our FAMILY for much longer! All three of Julie's own children attended Polly Panda from the time they were infants until Kindergarten. And now, three of her grandchildren, including T.J., in the photo, attend Polly Panda as well. We are so happy they have carried on the family tradition of being part of the Polly Panda family!
You can typically find Julie working part-time in our Infant area, but, she has been known to help out in Toddlers and Twos when needed.
Julie is a graduate of Purdue with a degree in business and marketing. She loves working with the babies, holding, rocking, and helping them celebrate when they meet their milestones such as rolling over and sitting up. Julie is best known for her fancy dancing with the babies, especially on Fridays when she rocks out to Footloose Friday with them.
Julie tells us she was hesitant at first to apply for the infant position since she didn’t have any experience working in a childcare setting. We are so glad and thankful that we were able to convince her she would be a natural with our babies.
