"Our task regarding creativity is to help children climb their own mountains, as high as possible, no one can do more" - Loris Malaguzzi, founder of schools for young children in Reggio Emilia, Italy

We are pleased to have been able to share a glimpse into our school community with you. We are on a continuous journey to enrich the lives of the children in our care, and our passion is fueled by a deep commitment to nurture their unique interests and talents.

I am the mother of four boys, a graduate of Seton Hall University and have owned and operated my own preschools since 1985. I hold a BA Degree in Early education, with NJ certifications in Elementary, P-3 and Teacher of Reading. My journey has taken me through my entire adult life and I am grateful to share that my passion for working with young children has never wavered. On the contrary, as I continue to study various educational philosophies with our staff and incorporate new ideas into our program it becomes increasingly more rewarding each year. I believe in the power of engaging, listening and problem solving, and commit to using these virtues to provide a school filled with joy!
