Just getting their walking feet! These wannabe toddlers are 12 to 24 months old. There are 8 children in the class and 2 teachers in the room with an extra set of hands available for lunch time everyday. They are just starting to experience the sensory table, some creative art and a little bit of story time at the lunch table while the teachers are getting plates ready. They love music, bubbles, throwing and climbing on everything!
Ashley Kirby, Head Teacher (2009)
I graduated from Watertown High School and attended BOCES for two years studying Early Childhood Education. I received my Child Development Associate credential in 2013. I enjoy working with the Waddlers and I love watching them grow and discover their world. I have great coworkers and feel like we all work as a team for the benefit of the children.

I am a graduate of Jefferson Community College with an Associates degree in Early Childhood Education and Liberal Arts Creative Writing. I had some great fieldwork experiences at Jefferson Campus Care and Fort Drum's Riva Ridge Daycare. I have always loved being around kids. A great joy in life is to make children smile and watch them grow.
