I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the staff of the Burlington Early Childhood Center. Over the summer we have made some changes to the early childhood programs. The LABBB Collaborative is no longer housed at the high school. They have moved to the new Memorial School. The early childhood space has been renamed to the Burlington Early Childhood Center and it houses all of the early childhood programs that the Burlington Public Schools provides. Currently there are 6 integrated preschool classrooms and the high schools early childhood program. (the high school program use to be run by Rosemary Bransfield who has retired)
As the Burlington Early Childhood Center continues to grow and develop so does the staff. The staff for the 2011/2012 school year is as follows:
Louise D'Amato, Director
Sandy Lagenfeld, Program Secretary
Heidi Walll and Jen Lenardo are the speech and language pathologist for the program.
Laura Impemba is returning as the occupational therapist and Kim Russell is the new physical therapist
Jessica Gearin is the nurse for the early childhood programs and Burlington High School.
