Our staff understands and works with each child’s needs. Whether your child is an older toddler learning to share or a pre-kindergartener beginning the road to their future, our teachers introduce new and dynamic means for them to learn and explore in creative and meaningful ways. We are proud of a curriculum that encompasses New York State standards and we recognize that school-readiness and success begin with child-centered approaches. In integrating various subjects, our goal is to create lifelong learners while caring for your children.

Comprised of dedicated professionals, our teaching staff have all the necessary certifications to teach in their classrooms. There is a director on site at all times. All staff members are First Aid and CPR trained.

Miss Evangeline (Vangie) Mojica, Director, Copiague

“Working with children is a noble profession because not only are we a part of their formative years but we learn and grow with them. Stanford is my home away home and I want children in my care to feel Stanford is their home away from home too – a warm, cheerful, learning and growing environment for them.”
