Hi my name is Stacey Albitz and I am excited to announce that I am the Director of the newly renovated Kiddie Academy in Bethpage. I've been married 29 years, have 3 children, and have been living in Long Island my whole life. I hold a Masters Degree in Early Education Curriculum and Instruction and a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. With over 25 years in the industry, I started off my career as a public school teacher and made the transition to early education as a preschool teacher & kindergarten teacher. Most recently, I had the privilege of being the Director of a local Early Educational Child Care Center and absolutely loved my experience. As I see it, there are four fundamental aspects of running a child care center—quality programming to engage the children, teacher excellence, fiscal management, and compliance with state and local regulations governing such facilities; each one of these facets is something I excel at and wholeheartedly give 110% of my effort. I am a proactive problem solver, an affable staff leader, a friendly face to children, a collaborative professional at staff and administrative meetings, and a great listener when parents want to talk. With that being said, feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns, or just to say hi... my door is always open. Thank you for the opportunity to be apart of your family.

“I love how much my child learns! ”

“Love the facility and providers but with multiple children and illnesses, it would be nice and helpful to have a sick bank due days paid for but not used. Example. Week has paid in full but child comes home / is sick towards end of week. Any missed half/full days should be in account so… ”

“The staff and teachers are wonderful! It was a hard transition when my children first started (we had moved to the area so this was a new school for them).
