Howard Chen

This childcare center was born out of desperate father looking for a way to spend more time with his children.  Like many new Yorkers, my wife and I both had great careers with a bright outlook.  We both enjoyed living in Brooklyn as it was a vibrant neighborhood with great restaurants and culture, not to mention the great commute to Manhattan where we both worked.  Then we had the amazing experience of welcoming our first born into the world.  Like most new parents, we went out to seek quality child care immediately.  We were looking for constant updates, caring staff, keeping track of how she was doing and would want to be there for her first moments.  However, there wasn’t one to be found in the area. We just couldn’t find a place where we felt comfortable leaving her for 10 hours a day. That was the moment that I knew something needed to be changed, regardless how much I valued my career.  It became clear that I had to provide high quality childcare. What this meant to me was a warm and inviting environment where highly qualified teaching staff are passionate about children and truly care about their needs, their happiness, and their growth.  I knew that creating this was not only important for me and my family, but for so many working families out there. I have a special connection to Williamsburg as my wife and I had our first child in this area.  Through many friends, I come to realized that this area is truly in need of a high quality, trust worthy, and passionate center.   I wanted to serve the neighborhood that we have seen transformed in the past few years, grow with it, and be a value to add to the community.      I am honored to finally be able to open our doors to you and your children. Thank you for trusting us with your babies.

Jasminem Ortiz, Admin Assitant

 I’m Jasmine!!My husband, Luis & I grew up here in Williamsburg. I’m a mom to a set of twins - Aiden & Adalynn, who are about to be six years old! My daughter Adalynn is a special needs child, and we love her with all our hearts. I’m also a new mom again to my 5-month-old baby girl Madison and my two stepkids, Brooklyn & Michael. Our family loves spending time together, whether it be playing sports, going to the movies, trampoline parks, etc. I come from a health and beauty background, being a certified makeup artist and personal trainer, and my husband is a licensed barber. Being in the childcare field is something I’ve always wanted to do since I was young, and now I’m a part of the Admin team here at Kiddie Academy. My passion for children came from being a mother first. I enjoy what I do at the academy. I look forward to meeting and serving the families here! Email Williamsburgadmin@gmail.com

Nicole B, Education Program Director

As a young girl my grandmother instilled a valve and love for education. It was through her that I learned that education was the "key to open all doors." I am an active learner with 15 years of Early Childhood experience and 5 years of Administrative experience. I have earned my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, a Master's degree in Education leadership at St. John's University with a 3.9 GPA. Currently, I am a full time student pursuing another Masters degree in special education. There wil always be a demand for educators to be accountable and intentional in practices. In my early childhood practices, I have learned how to observe students and teachers while using assessment tools and feedback loops to drive instruction. Through active engagement, the use of differentiated learning instructions, and my leadership abilities I have benefited both teachers and students. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling the world and learning about new cultures and traditions. I also enjoy spending time with my two adorable grandchildren. I look forward to vacationing with them and exploring the world through their eyes. It is my pleasure to lead Kiddie Academy and I look forward to an amazing journey.

Ragjay Green, Co-Director

Allow me to share a little about myself. With eight years of experience as an educator, I have had the privilege of witnessing the growth and development of countless children. Teaching is not just a profession for me; it is a calling and a passion. I am deeply committed to nurturing and empowering young minds, as I believe that every child has a unique potential waiting to be unlocked. It brings me immense joy to be a part of their educational journey, guiding them towards a path of discovery, curiosity, and self-discovery. Witnessing the progress and achievements of my students is incredibly rewarding, and it fuels my dedication to their growth and development. I strive to create a supportive and inclusive learning environment where each child feels valued, inspired, and encouraged to reach for their dreams. Teaching has become both a privilege and a responsibility that I wholeheartedly embrace, and I am excited to continue making a positive impact in the lives of the children I have the honor to teach.
