Directors Letter


Dear Parents/Guardians and Children:

My name is Jane Bartashnik and as a mother of two children, as well as an educator, I am acutely aware of parents needs and wants from their children and more importantly from the care that is given to their child in their absence.

Children have been a part of my life since 2001 when I got my first job as a kindergarten Teacher, working for the Department of Education. I have had the opportunity to work with different ethnicity of children and professionals in the field of education; always learning something to better myself as a teacher and providing helpful insights into the different needs of children. I am a continuous learner and made a pledge to myself that I will continue teaching children for the hope of bettering their educational paths.

I graduated from Brooklyn college with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and further obtained a Masters Degree as a Reading Specialist from Adelphi University. In addition; I completed a second Masters Degree in Special Education thus broadening my knowledge in child development and their various learning styles.

I am eagerly anticipating the challenge of being an intricate part of your children’s future. I love to see the look on their little faces when they learn something new. Watching them work together and accomplish goals set for them is the most amazing feeling in the world. Knowing that I played an intricate part in that, gives me great pleasure. I am also looking forward to meeting the parents of all the children that I will serve and developing a positive close knit relationship with every single one of you. Trust is of the utmost importance to me, both with the children and their parents.
I am looking forward to working with you, the parent(s), and developing a positive relationship. Trust is of the utmost importance to me and I have full conviction that we will develop this relationship together with an open door to communication.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact myself or any of my partners. We thank you for choosing our center and look forward to a successful start in your child’s development.

Respectfully Yours,

Jane Bartanshnik
