Nicole Jackson

Lead Teacher


Ms. Nicole is very excited to be a part of the Mid-City family. She’s been in the childcare industry for 8 years, with most of her experience being with infants and one-year-olds. For many of her students, this is the first introduction to a school setting. Her goal is to provide them with a fun and nurturing learning environment by working closely with each individual child to ensure he/she is reaching all developmental milestones. She comes from a background of healthcare providers, including her mom, sister and three of her aunts. She was born and raised in Destrehan, LA and married her high school sweetheart and love of her life, Michael. Together they have four beautiful children: Michael Jr. (18), Maya (13), Mariah (12) and Micah (5). In her free time, Nicole loves listening to music and practically lives at the movies.
