I am known as Miss Jolie and I have been teaching for 27 years. I started at Children Central in 2009, where I work with the young toddlers (ages 12-23 months). My love and passion for children, especially infants and toddlers, has made me into the well rounded teacher that I am today. Children Central has provided me with an environment where I can nurture and continue to grow professionally and provide the love that is essential for the children who are in my care. Working at Children Central gave me the initiative to pursue my CDA (Child Development Associates) credential, which I obtained in February 2011.
In addition to my professional profile, personally, I am a mother of two wonderful children, Derek who is 23 and Megan who is 19, as well as a wife to my husband Dave, to whom I have been married to for 25 years. I love spending time with my family and friends for they are the daily love and support in my life. Moreover, my family and I love to travel. We enjoy quality family time together. Camping and spending a day at the beach is what we enjoy most. Some favorite pastimes of mine are reading, jigsaw puzzles and shopping.
I have gained many positive and fulfilling experiences here at Children Central for it is a family owned business with excellent standards, as well as an experienced staff. The relationships I have built here will last a life time.
My name is Miss Megan. I began my teaching career at Children Central in September, 2016. I started as a teacher in the Toddler Room and then became a Floater/Assistant Teacher to gain more experience in the other classrooms. I am very happy to return to the Toddler Room where I already know the children and most of the families.
I am currently working on furthering my education, as I am currently studying to earn my CDA (Child Development Associates) credential. I love to teach young children. I especially enjoy reading to the class, singing, and getting on the floor and interacting with our one year old children. I will help get your child prepared for our Toddler Two class, which is the next class for when they turn two years of age.
Personally, I love spending quality time with my young cousins. My family and I like to go camping and try out various campgrounds. One day I hope to do more traveling across the United States. I am also a typical girl that likes to go shopping. Some of my favorite pastimes are listening to music and playing video games.
If I do not know you already, I look forward to getting to know all of the Toddler families and to teaching and caring for your child.
Hi! My name is Miss Gina and I joined Children Central as a Toddler Teacher in November of 2019.
My experience with children in a school setting goes back to 2002; with my first position as an Infant Teacher in a child care center. From there, I continued working in various preschools as a teacher for Infant, Young Toddlers, and Older Toddlers. I look forward to earning my CDA (Child Development Associates) credential in the near future to further my education and to benefit the children.
My love for children has been lifelong and toddlers have been where my heart is. Their personalities are really beginning to show and they cannot be any more adorable. I look forward to drawing out the sense of wonder and imagination from your child. I will help them to see their world in a no-boundaries sort of way; where they can explore their surroundings on a higher level to encourage open-mindedness in a safe and productive way.
I am a mom to a son Nick, 26, and daughter Abby, 13, with our dog Sasha. My husband and I have recently separated but remain close friends.
I enjoy my time with family & friends, spending time outdoors, cooking from scratch, running, shooting hoops, ice skating, and swimming. I love to be with children including my nieces and nephews and friend’s children.
Thank you for allowing me the pleasure of helping your child to grow and learn.
Meet Miss Joan!
Hi! My name is Miss Joan. I joined the Children Central family in February, 2019. I began as a teacher in the Twaddlers class, and have taught in the Preschool and Pre-K classrooms. I am now very happy to be your child’s teacher in the Toddler Room.
I attended Bucks County Community College where I earned my Child Development Associate (CDA) in June 2012. I am an award winning teacher of 34 years! I was selected as a Disney Hands Teacher Honoree # 90 out of the entire United States in 2004, which made me feel quite accomplished as a teacher! My staff, students and parents celebrated my award with a special luncheon at Somerton Springs Country Club. I was featured on the Channel 6 and 10 news, and in several newspapers across the Delaware Valley! I was honored again in 2006 as The Educator of The Year for BAEYC and NAEYC! I appeared on the Channel 6 news and was interviewed for many newspapers in the Tri-State area!
I am so happy to be teaching your child in the Toddler classroom! It is an environment where I can provide the love that is essential for all the children in my class. It is important to me that every child has a sense of accomplishment and is truly celebrated when they attain their goals! I love interacting with the children, as they learn new and exciting things each and every day! Incorporating the curriculum, I like to utilize "The Sing, Dance, and Play" method of teaching! I have found that the fun of learning encourages children to look forward to coming to school and my classroom!
I am married to my wonderful husband Gary. We have two amazing sons Brian and Chase. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, cooking, visiting museums, and traveling with Gary! My family means the world to me! Teaching is my life's work and my journey to promote learning and individuality! I love being a Teacher!
