infants team


Jackie Macdonald

I joined First Circle with over 30 years of childcare experience, including 12 years as a teacher at Trinity Catholic Academy. My mission is to make sure the children in my care are happy, healthy, and safe. I have lived most of my life in Stoughton with my two daughters. We love to shop, bake and spend time with family and friends.


Jessica Shallow

Since I started at First Circle, I have been working hard to create a calm and loving environment for our littlest ones. Previously, I worked at Children of America with infants and toddlers. I am currently working on finishing my bachelor's with a double major in early childhood and communications. I enjoy watching children achieve the milestones of child development. In my down time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going out to eat, and playing with my dog Zoey.

Before First Circle, I worked with all age groups at Children of America. Currently, I am working towards a bachelor's degree and my EEC teacher certification. My teaching philosophy is "teaching is not a one-size-fits-all practice." I like to personalize my style to each individual child. My goal is to help each child become a successful learner! In my down time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching tv, and cooking.


Kristin Dwyer

I have always been passionate about working with children. Before First Circle, I worked at the childcare center I joined when I was 18 years old, and I have completed several college classes in education. I enjoy watching children learn through play and each other. I love having the opportunity to see them grow and develop from infancy to preschool. I am the mom of 2 boys, Greyson and Ronan. My husband and I love going out to dinner and, of course, going on vacation!
