“At the time teaching jobs were hard to find, I worked in 4K in Superior, then started my family,” said Pohjola.

Stacy also worked at University Nursery School in Duluth and landed in Cloquet as the Director at All We Can Be on Doddridge Avenue. She opened her business Laugh & Learn, on January 2, 2013, and today operates three buildings with over 35 staff and lease space in Hermantown’s Salem Lutheran. She recently purchased her Washington Avenue building and opened a new lease space inside Cloquet’s Zion Lutheran Church.

“Our staffing is solid,” shared Pohjola.

“We conduct conferences, monitor school readiness, and have an array of teaching styles we use. Because we participate in Parent Aware, Minnesota’s quality rating and improvement system, we are regionally eligible for scholarships for families at the poverty level offering up to $12,500 which is extremely helpful in this area,” said Pohjola.
