Miss Tracy DeJulio
I started babysitting when I was just 12 years old and I’ve loved child care ever since! After graduating Pennridge High School in 1989 and working as a nanny, I worked in the Pre-Kindergarten class at TLC. In April 2009, I earned my CDA from Manor College. As a child care professional and advocate for young children, I strive to meet the individual needs of each child. It is important to nurture a child’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth through play in a safe environment.
I am so excited to become a part of the wonderful team you trust and love for your daycare provider and look forward to getting to know you and your children. Here’s a little background about me to start with, I left my healthcare career as a home health aide to start my journey in childcare. The best career change I ever made! I started my childcare journey in 2020 as a full time private nanny. From there, I moved onto a daycare where I started in the infant room as the lead teacher and also had the pleasure of teaching Pre-K! I am currently in the process of obtaining my Associates for Child Development and am CPR certified.
My name is Cathy Martin and I joined TLC in 2019 as an infant room assistant. I am currently a school bus driver for the Pennridge School District. I have been transporting and working with children since about 2006. Prior to my experience with children I owned and operated a dairy farm in Maryland for 23 years. Working with children is not only rewarding but beneficial to the soul. On a daily basis you think you are schooling them, but in reality they are teaching you and melting your heart.
I believe that every child is a sponge and they will follow by example. I am looking forward to getting to know your little ones as I build relationships with them and their families. I am really looking forward to spending some time with your babies as I anxiously await my own grandchildren!
I began working at TLC in 2018 after earning my Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2018. I have experience working with children of all ages. I formally taught gymnastics for five years and worked as a lead toddler teacher in a preschool. I feel that children deserve the chance to be educated properly while being cared for and shown compassion by their educators. It’s important to be patient, kind, and accepting of the children when educating them as well as meeting their individual needs. Each child should be given a time to shine and show off their accomplishments as well as strengths, it’s important to build a child’s self-esteem and confidence. I also believe that communication between parents and teachers is a key part in a child’s development, and I value the relationships that are built in doing so.
