Linda Plankinton

I am Teacher Linda and I have worked in the career of Childcare for over 20 years. I had the pleasure to enroll my daughter in Co-op at just 5 months old and continued through co-op to the 4s class. It was the best decision I have made as a parent, Co-op gave me the support I needed and gave my child very important social/emotional skills

When my daughter started elementary school I had the opportunity to teach in the Arbor Height’s 2’s classroom and I was so happy to be back at Co-op!

I love watching the children grow and change over the year and the parents developing lifelong relationships with each other. I believe a child’s job is to play! As a teacher I enjoy setting up the classroom to encourage play. Whether they are exploring ramps made from gutters, a home center or relaxing at the play dough or sensory table, I love to get down at their level and play alongside them.

I am currently the teacher for our Multi-Age class. The Multi-Age class has a variety of ages, turning our classroom into a family of children. Every year is different and unique!

Away from work, I love spending time with my family and camping with our two cats. I also enjoy gardening, quilting, and my new hobby, making fairy houses out of natural materials.
