Welcome, Maridel Perdomo!

Four months ago, on November 28, 2016, Maridel Perdomo  accepted our offer to become the next Director of Winn Brook Child Care. We missed the opportunity to celebrate that arrival on our webpage so are using the start of spring to correct that omission! Ms. Perdomo came to Winn Brook after a successful stint as the leader of a large, complex program operated by the Boston YMCA and located at the Gardner Pilot Academy in Allston. Prior to that, she was the director of the Pine Village (bilingual) Preschool in Cambridge and worked for several years in a variety of programs operated by Centro Latino, Inc. in Chelsea. A native of Caracas, Venezuela, Ms. Perdomo has earned the admiration of children, parents and staff in her prior work environments.

One recommendation, from a former employee stood out and made it clear why she should be asked to join us. This employee described her as an “inspirational leader and the best boss (this person) has ever had … super organized … extremely hard working … wonderful relationship with children, who feel loved, cared for and listened to … strong at bringing the community together … creative and innovative program leader”. We are thrilled that our offer was accepted and that she has made such a positive contribution to our program in such a short time. We wish you a belated welcome, Maridel, and look forward to finishing the year with exciting activities for students and staff!

We are happy to welcome the new slate of Advisory Council members for 2016-17. Co-chairs Amy Brown and Kara Morin will be leading the efforts of the council. Ted Wilson, Executive Director of Schools for Children, will be acting as Program Administrator and sit as an active member of the council. All members were recommended to the Schools for Children Board of Trustees and have been elected by unanimous vote in late June. They are: Helen Josephine, Tatum Abe, Joshua Gould, Missy Morley, Amanda Rettig and Jessica Mutch. We are delighted to have their active support as we head into an exciting new school year. Welcome!

An Expanded Program

As we begin the new school year, we are thrilled  to announce that our request to expand our capacity was approved by our licensing body with the full support of the Winn Brook Elementary School. We are now licensed for a maximum capacity of 140 children (up from 120). This allowed us to offer more Before and After School slots to WBES families seeking our support. Additional rooms have been made available to us in the afternoon and staff is enthusiastically revising programs and scheduling to provide the very best programming possible for your children. We look forward to meeting and greeting each of you as the year kicks off!
