We are so pleased to introduce Cobb Families to our new Director, Carol Hinchliff!

Carol currently resides in Switzerland, but will be joining us stateside soon to further drive our mission of providing equitable access to high-quality care and early education for Douglas County families. With robust experience in a child-centered approach to early learning, Carol brings expertise in teacher coaching, curriculum implementation, and classroom support to Cobb Childcare & Preschool. Jessica will scale back her role as Executive Director, focusing on capacity building, organizational growth, pedagogy support and overall operations of our small but mighty non-profit.

Carol is originally from Canada where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Education and taught third grade for 2 years. She then moved to California; attained her Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction, taught for 17 years, and raised her two daughters. Carol was also a teacher in the states of Washington, Colorado, and New Mexico before moving to Switzerland where she implemented a three-year-old program at TASIS (The American School in Switzerland).

When not working with children, Carol enjoys gardening, hiking, skiing, and traveling. She is excited to be joining the Cobb Childcare and Preschool team and is looking forward to her new home in Oregon.

Current Cobb families will be receiving a special invitation to a virtual meet and greet, schedule for Thursday May 27th 2021.
