Meet the Owners

Emily Zaghi

Hello Floral Park Community! I am so excited to introduce myself as the Owner of Kiddie Academy of Floral Park! I look forward to meeting you and to welcoming you to Kiddie Academy. First and foremost, me and my husband, Moshe, are the proud parents of three amazing daughters, ranging from 6 months old to 8 years old. Before joining the Kiddie Academy family, I served as the Director of Operations of a non-profit organization that supports individuals experiencing medical infertility. Prior to this, I was a CPA in Asset Management Tax at PricewaterhouseCoopers. And while I was studying as an undergraduate and master’s student, I worked as an Elementary School teacher and an after-school Youth Group leader, where I empowered my students and encouraged them to learn, grow, and develop their unique strengths and talents. While the avenues may seem distant, I learned valuable lessons of building and supporting a passionate team of individuals, client management, problem solving and most of all, leading with creativity and passion.   Our journey into Early Childhood Education small business ownership was ignited by our two daughters’ attendance at early childhood education programs. Witnessing the incredible work of their educators fueled our passion to contribute to this meaningful field. We’re now eager to provide a nurturing environment for children to learn, grow, and thrive. Our unwavering commitment to this field drives our excitement as we embark on this new chapter. I truly want our Academy to be a place where parents know their children are getting excellent care, having fun, and learning and growing each and every day. It is my hope that parents are as comfortable leaving their children here at Kiddie Academy of Floral Park as they are leaving them with family. Please don't hesitate to reach out! I can be reached directly at emily.zaghi@kiddieacademy.net. I look forward to connecting with you!

Grace Sciretta, Assistant Director

  Hello, all! I am overjoyed to introduce myself as the Assistant Director of Kiddie Academy of Floral Park! I began my experience at Kiddie Academy of Floral Park four years ago as a dedicated preschool teacher, all while completing my Bachelors in Psychology followed by my Master’s in Social Work. In earning my Master’s degree, I pursued my fieldwork as a child & family therapist at Northshore Child & Family Guidance Center (NSGC), in the Right from the Start (0-3+)/Diane Goldberg Maternal Mental Health programs. NSGC is a not-for-profit children’s mental health agency on Long Island, dedicated to restoring and strengthening the emotional well-being of children (from birth–age 10) and their families. During my time there, I provided individual and family therapy including diagnoses, treatment plans, prevention, training, parent education, research and advocacy. I am eager to utilize my experience to connect with and support the KAFP community in every way I can!
