My name is Kayla and I am a Owner/Director of Creative Sprouts Childcare Center! I grew up close to Saratoga, in Rotterdam, New York with my family of six . Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed teaching and working with young children. I have over 12+ years of experience in the Early Childhood field, including a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood and acquiring a Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis. I taught Pre-K and Kindergarten for a combined total of 5 years and enjoy creating curriculums that are developmentally appropriate and child specific for each individual child. One of my goals was to eventually not only teach children, but educate teachers on lesson planning, classroom management and other necessary skills utilized within the classroom. Opening my own childcare center has always been a dream of mine since I can remember and doing so I am able to do both together! I truly believe that childcare is the foundation for any child's educational career. Here we will not only teach academics, but we are teaching empathy, understanding of emotions, social skills and most importantly how to be kind. My passion for teaching children and teachers has only increased over the years and I am very excited to begin this journey with all of you!
