"One World, Many Stories"
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

Gigi's Getaway was established in 2018 by Melissa Heinemann along with the unconditional support and encouragement of her husband, family and friends.  Melissa is a former preschool director who has 20 years of education and work experience in the field of Early Childhood Education. 

Gigi's Getaway is an unique "No Walls" program that provides opportunities outside for creativity and exploration. 

Learning Opportunities are guided by the interest of the children to promote wonder and curiosity.  Each day, the staff collaborates to discover ways to expand activities and experiences.  

Gigi's Getaway is inspired by various philosophies.  The Reggio-Emilia Approach, Montessori Method, and Play Base Curriculum are all woven into the program. 

   Gigi's Getaway is the beginning of a larger vision to build a community through preschoolers.  

A team of dedicated professionals are on staff to grow alongside your child and family.  Each member has an educational background in Early Childhood Education with many years of teaching or directing experience in this field. 

Melissa and her staff look forward to being a part of the next chapter in your child's unique story. 

Thank you for being a part of our world.
