CHICAGO – Jean Clark Laube was a pioneer in the development of early childhood education. A graduate of The Ohio State University, she owned and operated one of the first preschools in the state of Connecticut. Jean created an environment that allowed every child to thrive. When she didn’t have what she needed she created it, including musical plays for her parent’s day performances. Throughout her career as a teacher, Jean wrote over 180 songs for nursery school programs and created ten adventure themed scripts such as the circus, zoo and mother goose land.
