Company Summary

We opened our doors this past September as a nursery school for 3-5 year old's. We are approved by the NYS Department of Health to provide Early Intervention Services. We are now in the third of our four step plan which is to become day care licensed. We are scheduled to be licensed in the next few weeks, however we are running short on funding. Our last step of our plan is to get approval to provide preschool special education services.

    I’m a certified special education teacher as well as a certified speech therapist. I found my love of working with children with disabilities when I was only 14 years old. At that age, I began volunteering in a group home for children with special needs. The majority of my experience is with the preschool age. I have worked in an administrative position as a preschool liaison and consider my speciality to be with preschool aged children.

    I earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and my master's degree in literacy. I have taught kindergarten as well as in Head start for several years. I now also have my certificate to work with students with disabilities. Teaching young children has become my passion, I don’t go to “work” each day, I go to “school” and I love it.
