Pine Village at 57 South St. in Jamaica Plain is located in a historic section of the JP business district.
Located in the former Harvest Co-Op, this space was renovated specifically to meet the needs of our children. The school is warm, bright and inviting, and is home to seven classrooms for children ages 15 months to 5 years. We are part of a vibrant neighborhood setting and are in close proximity to local parks for outdoor activities. Our two JP locations collaborate often and enjoy a close relationship, as they are only a short walk from each other. This school relocated from Centre Street in January 2017.
Johanneryck (Johan) Valladares
Johan Valladares was a teacher for infants through Pre-K for more than twelve years before becoming the director of PVP JP South Street. "I am thankful for this opportunity where I can influence children’s lives every day," she says, "and to have the privilege to guide and empower the teachers at my school. I love what I do, and I enjoy taking care of all my community." Johan is also a PVP mom--her son Lucas has attended PVP since the day he turned 15 months. She loves having the perspectives of a teacher, parent, and now as a director.
She adds, "I love coming to work and being part of the great community that is formed by the families, children and our team. I can’t wait to meet you and welcome you to our community!"
