Infants have individual personalities. We help bring them to light.
Toddlers are extremely active. We keep them actively learning.
At two years old, children need to explore. We give them every opportunity.
At three years old, children discover and create. We encourage them to do it all.
At four years old, children are preparing for school. We get them ready to go.
School-age children are curious about the world. We help them decipher it.

I am so excited to be the director of Kiddie Academy of Bethpage. I have over 20 years experience working with children from birth - High School. I have an AA in Early childhood education, a BA in Speech Language Pathology and attended Adelphi University for the Masters Program. Personally I have been a director of a childcare center for over 10 years and have traveled the east coast setting up and training new staff for childcare centers. I am a mom to 3 amazing children that keep me focused on my journey to continue educating and empowering children. My passion for teaching children has brought me back to a position in the schools. I believe in building a community between the school and parents and actively seeking a partnership to work for the growth and benefit of all the families that attend our school.
