Kara Chmielewski

I am the lead Infant Teacher on the Mobile side. I have been working at Love and Learn Child care Academy since we opened in October of 2017. I grew up in the small town of Byron, MN with two brothers and one sister. After high school, I went  to Winona State University and graduated with degrees in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. I have been working in childcare for six years now. My favorite part of working with babies is aiding in their development and watching and celebrating with them when they meet milestones. When I’m not working with tiny humans, I like to crochet, do puzzles, or hand out with my two nieces. My favorite season is summer and my favorite summer activity in going for a bike ride with an ice cream cone at the end! I’m excited for the opportunity to work with your child and getting to know your family!
