Owner and Founder Since 2015
I am the Lead Teacher at Berkys Day Care with 40 years of experience working with children. I have a passion working with children and I believe that we are changing education as well as our communities understanding of how children learn best. I believe these years are critical to a whole child’s development which directly effects their entire future. I believe there is nothing more important than the work we do with young children and families. Everything we do directly affects the outcomes.
