Meet Our Director

Hi, my name is Jessica Wokas and I am so excited to be a part of the Adora Early Learning Academy family! Working with children in early education for over 23 years has been one of the most rewarding experiences and I am grateful to explore more learning opportunities with you and your little ones that join our family too!

I began my career working with children in 2001 as a part time job while finishing High School at a Bright Horizon in Hoffman Estates Illinois. What began as a “job” transformed into a love of educating children. I also have had the opportunity to work with children with unique abilities in a childcare setting and in the privacy of their own home learning how all children learn different and it is our responsibility as early educators to adapt to their needs and not conform to the standards.

I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a concentration in Organizational Behavior in 2015 as a goal to not just learn more about child development but to understand the psychology of development and learning in adolescence, teenagers, and adults. I then began my path in a leadership role with KinderCare for one year before moving to Cumming, Georgia and worked in a leadership role with Primrose Schools for the next seven years.

I made the transition to Adora in 2024 because I truly believe the importance of learning through play and having the ability for educators to adapt curriculum and materials for the needs of the children as they grow and develop at their own ages and stages of development!
