Hello my name is Jamie Cagna and caring for children is my passion. As Director for Kiddie Academy of Islip, I will focus our team on creating the best positive learning experience for each child while encouraging creativity and ensuring safety for all of our children.
I have been in the field of Early Childhood Education for over 12 years. I last held the position of Assistant Director for a private preschool in West Palm Beach, Florida and have also directly worked with children here on Long Island in teaching positions with other learning centers and in public schools. My formal educational background includes a BA in Psychology from Dowling College as well as a Masters Degree in Childhood Education from Long Island University.
Along the way I became a mother and my daughter has certainly given me a new perspective and understanding of what it means to be a parent. I have always been able to share and relate to parents but now I am mostly speaking first hand! My varied experiences and education have given me tremendous knowledge in providing a safe and healthy learning environment for your children.
I value the wonderful staff we have here at Kiddie Academy, as well as the supportive and nurturing group of people that are part of our management team. I enjoy coming to work each day and my favorite part of Early Childhood Education has always been watching the continuous growth of each individual child. I look forward to building strong relationships with the families that are part of our Academy!
My goal is to make sure every child is always safe, nurtured and receives the educational experiences they deserve. I would love for you to stop by to meet our staff and see why Kiddie Academy of Islip is the right choice for your family.
