Colleen Peretti

Colleen Peretti

Assistant Director

 5 years experience as an Early Childhood Educator. Graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education from Dowling College with a dual certification in Special Education. Experienced working with Elementary students as well as Preschool age children.  She also enjoys spending time reading, exercising, and spending time with my husband and two children- Amanda who is 10 and Joey who is 6.  Joey had attended Miss Midgies Preschool, which made it all possible for her to work here.   I love traveling with my family as well as learning new and exciting things!  My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work alongside with them to maximize it. I believe in hands-on experiences, learning creatively and learning through play.
