My name is Miss Amy and I started at Children Central in 1998. I have been working with children for over 20 years. I graduated from Penn State University in 1996 with a BS degree in Health Policy Administration and decided I love working with children, so I continued to pursue a Master’s degree in Education. I graduated from Holy Family University in 2002 with a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. From 2002-2004 I substitute taught in the Neshaminy, Pennsbury and Bensalem school districts. I soon realized that my passion for children was for that of a young age.
In addition to my credentials, I have had a lot of life experiences that have helped shape and mold me into the person that I am today. In 1998, I backpacked all over Western Europe for four months, living in either a tent, when safe, or in youth hostels. The experiences I gained in traveling across other countries exposed me to many other cultures and ways of life, helping me to better understand myself as well as others. Each summer, my husband, two boys and I move to the Jersey shore to enjoy two months with family and friends. We believe strongly in family and feel that we are providing our children with not only memories that will last a life time but also a sense of what it means to be a family unit.
My two sons have attended Children Central. My oldest graduated the full-day kindergarten and my youngest graduated the Pre-Kindergarten class. They both started when they were 8 weeks old and there is no other place I would put my children. They have both been surrounded by so much love and nurturing while in a learning environment, and I would not have it any other way.
