Staff Spotlight: 
Meet Lori Sitor
Lori Sitor is certified family child care provider, Registry member, and the owner of jamLES Childcare, located in De Pere. Lori is recognized for her remarkable passion and dedication to providing quality care for young children. 
Lori has always had a desire to be around and teach children. Believing she could help lay a lasting foundation, she chose the early childhood care field. "I don't know of a better place to make lasting lifelong impacts." 
 
This belief has fueled Lori's drive and dedication to providing quality care and creating a highly engaging environment centered around the needs of the children in her care. 
She has completed two Registry Credentials (Infant Toddler and Preschool) and has recently been awarded accreditation through the National Association for Family Child Care.
 
Though the accreditation process was challenging, Lori recognizes the importance of each step and believes the entire process has helped her align with today's best practices.
Looking ahead, Lori is more excited than ever to continue working with children and families.
