CENTER DIRECTOR – MIDDLETOWN
I began my career at Prime Time Early Learning in 1993. I am enthusiastic about leading our Middletown Center and creating an environment that is rich with opportunities for children to grow, develop and to prepare for school. I have an AA degree in Early Childhood Education and continuously attend professional development classes to stay abreast of the latest advances and practices. As with all Directors at Prime Time, I am CPR and First Aid certified, I also have the Medical Administration Training (MAT) certification for New York state.
I feel blessed to have a career that allows me to both be around children every day, and to form great relationships with parents. My personal philosophy is the same as Prime Time’s; to provide a safe and loving environment for children so that parents may devote needed time to their careers and development while secure in the knowledge that their children are in the best of hands.
CENTER DIRECTOR – FARMINGDALE
I have been the Center Director at Prime Time Early Learning Center in Farmingdale since it opened in June, 2000. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree from CW Post College and a Children’s Programming Administrative Credential (CPAC) from Empire College where I am also a CPAC Reviewer. I am an active board member of the Child Care Council of Suffolk and sit on their Medical Advisory Board. I am certified in CPR, First Aid and Medical Administrative Training (MAT).
I am dedicated to the belief that each child is unique and needs a safe, caring atmosphere to learn and grow. I believe that the most important job in the world is to teach and nurture a child. I know that every child who passes through our doors has been cared for by compassionate, well-qualified Teachers and assistants who have truly dedicated themselves to the welfare of all the children in our care. I am very proud to be the Director of Prime Time’s Farmingdale School.
CENTER DIRECTOR – HOBOKEN
I was a Kindergarten Teacher, a Child Care Center Assistant Director and a Director and have worked in Early Childhood Education for over 20 years before I joined the Prime Time Family as the Director of Prime Time Hoboken in 2015. I have a Teaching Certification from the Cyril Potter College of Education and both BS and MBA Degree from the University of Phoenix.
CENTER DIRECTOR – EAST RUTHERFORD
I joined Prime Time in February 2017 and have more than ten years of experience in Early Childhood leadership and management and a Bachelor’s Degree from Rutgers University. I started my career as an early childhood classroom teacher and have worked in a variety of positions with small and large child care providers building a strong understanding of how a team works together to run a successful school. I believe the most important part of early childhood education is developing children’s social and emotional intelligence. I love the opportunity to teach children how to problem solve and to be creative. I am a New Jersey native and when I am not with my Prime Time Family, I love traveling with my wife and two sons, exploring the world and seeking adventure in new and exciting places.
CENTER DIRECTOR – PARAMUS
I have over 20 years of early childhood education experience as a leader of child care teams. I was Center Director for several Bergen County YWCA facilities and prior to joining Prime Time, I was the Assistant Director of Turrell Child Care Center in Paramus. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and served as an instructor at Bergen Community College, teaching classes in their Child Development Associates Degree program. Having worked for many years with the NJ state GrowNJKids program and the Bergen County Office for Children, I have built an excellent regional reputation as a leader and innovator in the field of Early Education.
CENTER DIRECTOR – EDGEWATER
I began my career at Prime Time in 2011 at the Edgewater Center. Since then, I worked in a variety of leadership positions in several of our schools including Mahwah and East Rutherford.
