In 1975, my husband Abe and I bought Community Nursery School and the house where it was located in Rockaway Township. For 25 years our family lived in the house and I operated the Community Nursery School. During this time, Abe was a public school teacher in Parsippany, New Jersey. In 1989, Little Learner Academy was my dream that turned into reality. This dream has evolved into two child care centers, one in Rockaway, and one in Budd Lake, New Jersey.
Abe and I have three grown children: Jason, Scott, & Marci. Jason and Scott work for Little Learner Academy and Marci is a Rockaway Township Police Officer. Abe and I have 4 grandsons, who are the light of our lives. Ryan and Drew, Justin and Max. Each of our sons and their wives has two sons.
I am the past president of the New Jersey Child Care Association and past Board of Directors member for the National Child Care Association. In 1998 I was named New Jersey Small Business Person of the Year. I was a member of the Rockaway Township Fire Department for 18 years and was a member of the Rockaway Township Council for 12 1/2 years. I am a Past-President of the Rockaway Rotary Club. I consider myself a very lucky person. I look forward to work each day because I love what I am doing. In my spare time, I play with my grandsons, dabble in politics, take Tai Chi classes, and love to read.

Our Philosophy…… recognizing the community’s need for infant care, preschool care, kindergarten and school aged child care for working parents, we give priority placement to this population.
… We believe children learn best through play and social interactions. Our main goals are to nurture children and help them learn to get along with their peers. Child-centered means our program is here to meet the real needs of children, allow them the freedom to be children, and put their physical, emotional, and intellectual well-being first.
… We see inappropriate or destructive behavior as a problem to be solved, primarily by the children with the help of a teacher. Problem solving is how we teach children to form positive relationships, resolve conflicts, learn self-discipline, and show respect for others.
… We accomplish these goals through active listening, negotiating, setting limits, making children feel important, and building our learning environment around the children’s needs.
… We are always happy to discuss our philosophy, as well as the individual needs of your child with you.
