Steph has been working in early childhood education for over ten years, most recently as the Director of a child care center in Chicago. She has extensive experience with teaching and guiding children from birth to 12 years, as well as creating lesson plans and curriculum for infants to school aged students. She truly loves every interaction and opportunity she has to help children of all ages grow, learn, and excel, and it was through this passion for working with children that Steph went on to complete her degree in Early Childhood Education with a Specialization in Early Childhood Administration, and minor in Special Education. Steph believes that each child deserves a safe, supportive, and fun learning experience, and she is so excited to become a part of the Kiddie Academy of Munster team to help bring NWI families quality child care!
