Jeff Swanson, Owner

jen Moreau

Interim Director

Meet Ms. Jen…
My name is Jen Moreau. I have been with Creative Learning for a year and four months. You will see me with the Preschool Threes  from 9:00 to 1:00 and with the infants from 2:30 to 6:00. I enjoy having the opportunity to work with both age groups as well as being the Interim Director.

Before Creative Learning I worked with preschool aged children at South Congregational Church Nursery School. I also have my Head Teacher Certificate in Early Childhood. I always had a love for working with children. I am grateful to be a part of the Creative Learning family and to have the opportunity to see the children learn and grow.

I am at the school by 9:00 a.m. until close most days.  Please always feel free to come talk to me if you are at the center.  I would love to meet everyone.  If you are interested in a tour of our Center, call 860-653-8161 or email

Our goal from the moment you step into our front entrance and sign in your child is to help your child grow here.  We take great pride in the fact that you have entrusted your children to us for over 40 years.

Jeff is a Granby Bear at heart, growing up in Granby and enjoying his childhood while watching and many times helping his mother take care of the children of Granby and the surrounding towns with their needs for care and education.  Jeff spent many summers working at the Granby Parks and Recreation Department as a Sports Camp Counselor, Lifeguard and Director.   It was because of this passion for children and people that he decided to go to Springfield College to study Health & Fitness and continue to help others.  Today, besides being the owner of CLP, Jeff owns two Anytime Fitness Centers in Belchertown and Westfield, MA.  Jeff’s clubs offer a Wellness Coaching session for all new members to help them get to a healthier place.  

During the evenings, Jeff and his wife, Michelle are newly empty nesters or taking care of their two granddaughters.  Their daughter, Meaghan, is married, completed her MSW Studies at Westfield State University and is working as a Social Services Director.  Their son, Zachary, has graduated with his MBA from Springfield College and now works for Dad in Northampton as his H2i, Manager at Anytime Fitness.  Jeff is on the Park Commission in his home town of Southampton, MA and hopes to offer to his new community the same services that everyone in Granby has grown accustom too.  
As the Owner of Creative Learning Preschool and Child Care Center it is his goal to continue the family tradition of offering the families of Granby and the surrounding towns a comfortable, safe learning environment that you would consider a second home for your child.  We take great pride in creating a family environment while maintaining a high standard of creative learning for your child.  If you have any questions or comments, Jeff can be reached at
