Meet Jenny Tan. Owner, Operator, and Head of School at Eastside Children’s Academy. Originally from Shanghai, China, Jenny moved to the U.S. in the early 1990’s where she met her husband, and they began to grow their family and careers. In addition to being a very involved owner, Jenny also volunteers for the PTSA, local schools, Bellevue Club Swim Team, and the Bellevue High School Swim Team.
How does she do it all, you ask? She enjoys spending quality time with her own family by swimming some laps at the local club, playing tennis, and listening to classical piano music & classic Chinese songs. In addition, her own belief in the value of community and dedicating herself to ensuring that Eastside Children’s Academy is not just a school in Bellevue, but a school FOR Bellevue, is the keystone to delivering the highest caliber of support as an early childhood education program. “This belief,” Jenny says, “it pervades everything we do — from our partnerships with other organizations, to ensuring that each of our families feel valued and included in the collaborative culture of their child’s classroom. We are committed to serving the families of Bellevue.”
With such a strong woman at “the helm of the ship” Eastside Children’s Academy continues to thrive as an exceptional bilingual school here, in the heart of Bellevue.
