    • Stephanie Collom
      Owner/Director

      My work with corporate preschools allowed me to focus on my dream of opening a preschool with a difference: a school that provides a family-like atmosphere and offers meaningful experiences in a nurturing environment for all children to learn, grow, and achieve in.

    • Jessica Roupas
      Private Kindergarten Teacher/Assistant Director

      I have had a love for teaching for over 20 years. This is a career that is constantly changing, but which I continue to learn from everyday! I continue to feel a sense of fulfillment when I provide my students with an enriching environment. The payoff is simple…the kids are happy and learning in that environment.

    • Jennifer McNair
      Food Specialist

      Having children myself, I have a passion to make nutritious foods for the children here at the center. I enjoy making new meals with a healthy twist that incorporate foods that the children may not typically eat at home.
      It is a true joy to see their smiles when I deliver their food in their classrooms and I look forward to making a difference in their healthy lifestyles here at the center.

    • Michelle Glenn
      Preschool, Early Preschool, Pre-K Teacher

      I truly believe the more kids use their hands the more they learn and have fun. My moto is the messier the task is the more fun it is.

      What I love about working at Educare is that everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated on preparing the kids for the future.
