Jane L. Banister is the Director of Hoya Kids Learning Center. She has been with HKLC since January 2000. Before coming to Georgetown University she taught and directed a variety of employer-sponsored Early Childhood programs. She has worked professionally with children since the early 1990’s, but young children have captured her heart long before. She believes that this is the time of building that ever-important foundation for life – positive self-esteem, a love of exploration, limitless curiosity – the list goes on. She feels honored to be a part of their lives during this time. Being on a University campus, she is very interested in utilizing the resources and diverse talents on campus to enrich the program and increase its value to clients as well as Center staff. Jane has bachelor’s degree in Child Development and Family Relations from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Program Administration from George Washington University at Mount Vernon College.
