My name is Miss Melissa and I have worked at Children Central for the past 19 years, having started in December, 2001. I am Lead Teacher in the Preschool classroom and am also Senior Staff Supervisor.
I currently have earned the equivalent of a CDA (Child Development Associates) credential. I have also been a certified medical home health aide for the past 8 years.
I previously taught the two year olds in our Twaddler classroom for 16 years. This experience was great preparation and helped contribute to my knowing how to effectively teach our 3 year olds in Preschool. I have found much happiness and humility working with children. My goal as a teacher is to make sure the children in my care gain a sense of compassion, confidence and a love for learning! I like to incorporate a variety of art and music in my class daily to help the children’s creativity to flow naturally. I also make sure each child is celebrated when they reach their goals in the classroom to give them a sense of accomplishment and confidence. I have found the keys to success in my classroom are good leadership, working very closely as a team of teachers, and continuing to be very creative with the curriculum.
My strong family connection has been a big part of who I am today. We are an active family who love to travel, gather once a week for family dinner and game night, and enjoy our annual traditional gatherings and family sports events.
I feel very confident that my education coupled with my personal experiences can continue to be a positive asset to Children Central, as I help prepare the class for our Pre-Kindergarten program.
Hello! My name is Miss Carol. I am happy to have joined Children Central in August, 2019 as a teacher in the Preschool class.
I have 18 years’ experience working in a child care / preschool setting. My first 12 years I was a teacher in a Toddler classroom, and for the past 6 years I taught Pre-Kindergarten. I look forward to assisting with the learning experiences of our 3 and 4 year olds to prepare them for the Pre-K classroom. I earned my CDA (Child Development Associate) credential in 2016 from Bucks County Community College.
I am devoted to teaching kindness to young children. Kindness towards each other leads to respect for one another, and the acceptance of everyone’s differences. I believe that when young children understand how to be kind, they are able to show compassion and empathy towards others. I love music, art and books and I enjoy sharing this love with young children.
My husband and I are currently empty nesters. We look forward to our son's wedding in April 2020! We always enjoy visiting our daughter who lives in Pittsburgh, PA.
I personally look forward to getting to know all of the children and their families in the Preschool class.
Meet Miss Tiffany!
Hello Preschool families! I am Miss Tiffany. In October, 2019 I joined Children Central as a teacher in the Twaddler Room. I am very happy to have ‘graduated’ to the Preschool class together with many of your children, as I already know many of the fmailies.
I am enrolled in school for my Child Development Associates (CDA) credential. This is an online course, so that I am able to teach full time and work at my own pace. Working with children has become a passion of mine. I love watching children learn in so many different ways; it can be as easy as playing. Many people do not think that children learn through structured play, but they do! It is so important for their development and overall growth.
My previous position was with the Bucks County Intermediate Unit. I assisted the teachers with the children and loved teaching songs and playing games. I enjoyed this work with special needs children.
I have been a Girl Scout leader to 4th and 5th grade girls for the past five years. I am also a mother of three children who are 8, 4 and 2 years old. I am happily married to my husband for 9 years. We have a cat and a bunny who are very spoiled.
I am so honored to be a part of your child's development, as their teacher. Please communicate with me about anything that would help me to learn more about your child.
I look forward to getting to know all of the children and families here at Children Central.
