MEET OUR FACULTY
This is my third year working at Long Island Child Care where I am now the manager. I graduated from SUNY Oneonta with a Bachelor’s degree in History. For my first three years at college I was an Education major and spent many hours in schools working with kids. I plan to go back for my Master’s degree in education and to be a high school History teacher. I have gained experience in the field of education by working with children in schools and summer camps. Working with children is something I am passionate about along with bringing excitement to a fun learning environment. I am trained by the Department of Health is Food and Health safety, American Red Cross certified in CPR and First Aid, and am a lifeguard during our summer camp. I look forward to having an amazing year and can’t wait for it to start!

Hello, my name is Miss Jessica! I have been working at LICC since 2013 and with children of all ages for about 15 years. I am also a mother to my beautiful daughter, Gia! I graduated from Stony Brook University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a concentration in Child Psychology. I am a Red Cross certified Lifeguard and trained in First Aid and CPR. It brings me such joy to work with children and watch them learn and grow! I am so excited to teach your children new and incredible things this year =)
My name is Miss Kim and I pretty much grew up at Long Island Childcare. I attended daycare, preschool and Camp Greenbrook as a child and returned in 2011 as a toddler teacher. After graduating from Northeastern University in Boston with a B.S. in Political Science and working on local campaigns, I became pregnant with my first child. Once I became a mother I shifted my career towards education. I became a certified Infant/Toddler Teacher and a certified Preschool Lead Teacher through my work in early childhood education in Massachusetts. I gained my Provisional Teaching licenses for Elementary (1-6) and Moderate Disabilities (Prek-8) from my work in Boston Public Schools. In April of 2021, my three children and I moved back home and returned to Long Island Childcare. On behalf of Danny, Ellie, Frankie and myself, let me just say that we are so excited to be back! =)
We employ caring, nurturing people to assist our head teachers. Some of the supporting staff are mothers of their own children, some are pursuing degrees in education, and all love children. All of our head teachers are certified, experienced, well-qualified educators.
