My name is Miss Melissa and I have worked at Children Central for the past 17 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, and am looking forward to pursuing an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education starting in the fall. I have also been a certified medical home health aide for the past 6 years.
I previously taught the two year olds in our Twaddler classroom. 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 Ms. Jenn and I joined Children Central as a teacher in the Preschool classroom in December, 2016. I have approximately 10 years of experience teaching, as I have had the opportunity to work with every age group from infants to school age children.
I am very close to completing an Associate’s degree in early childhood education from Bucks County Community College, and would like to obtain my CDA (Child Development Associate’s Credential) until I am able to do so. I absolutely love what I do and I have always wanted to be a teacher. Being a part of a child's growth and development is something very special for me. I love teaching Preschool because the 3-4 year olds always find something new and exciting each day, as the children are so eager to learn and explore the world around them.
I believe each child is unique and different, and learns in their own way. I am thrilled to be a part of your child's life and the start of their education, as I look forward to helping prepare the children for our Pre-Kindergarten class. It is my goal to encourage a love of learning and have each child in my class develop their own independence and be able to express themselves creatively.
I currently live in Langhorne with my daughter Savannah who was born in January, 2016. She attends Children Central in the Toddler Room. Being a first-time mom, I absolutely love that she can be here with me. I cannot wait to watch her grow and see all the new things that she is going to learn. I am also anticipating the birth of my son due in February, 2018 as he will start here in the Infant Room.
In my spare time, I love to take pictures, do arts and crafts, spend time with friends and family, as well as go camping and to the beach.
I look forward to teaching your child and getting to know all of the families!
