Meet the Team


Patricia Moody


HI! I'm Patricia and I grew up in Centerville, Iowa where my grandmother and mother ran in-home daycares. I loved growing up in a small town and my husband, Shane, and I wanted the same experience for our children.


We moved to Polk City in 2009 where we now reside with our two

daughters, Juliana and Katelyn. I have a passion for community and have never met a stranger!


I have Bachelors in Psychology from Southwest Baptist University and

worked as a social worker for adults with disabilities and elders for 20 years. Continued work in the field led me to continue my education and in December 2020 I earned my Masters in Public Administration from the University of South Dakota.


I am involved in various activities within the school district and my local church and am excited to serve the Elkhart community. I believe every experience and offered opportunity a child of any age has is a chance to grow and learn and I look forward to partnering with the community to provide a safe & nurturing environment full of play and exploration.
