Kimberly Bogert

Director/Head Teacher

 

 

 

I have had the privilege of being the Director and Head Teacher of Little Scholars Preschool since 2016. I received my A.S. degree in Early Childhood Education from Gateway Community College and my B.S. degree in Child Development from Charter Oak State College.  I have worked with children, infants to Kindergarten, for over 23 years. Most of my time, however, has been spent teaching PreK 3 and PreK 4. I am certified in CPR, First Aid, AED and Medication Authorization.

 

I am devoted to providing children with a loving and developmentally appropriate foundation for a lifetime of learning. I recognize and appreciate the value that play provides for a child. I strive to provide a safe, nurturing environment where children can be immersed in activities that support all areas of their development.

 

I am very passionate about travel! In fact, I recently became a certified travel agent and opened my own business, Adventures by Kimberly. I have traveled through much of the US, parts of Europe, and the Caribbean, however, Disney World holds a very special place in my heart!  My goal is to visit each state and hike every National Park with my family. I live in Wallingford with my husband, David; son, Dylan (10); and our dog, Rocco.  As a family, we enjoy traveling, hiking, and having family game and movie nights.

Meg DiMascio

Assistant Teacher

 

 

I have worked with children all my life.  I was hired at CCMC daycare, where I worked an after- school high school job.  I went to Lasell College in Newton, MA, where I studied Early Childhood Education.  I returned to CCMC in 2000 as an assistant teacher working in both the infant room and preschool class for 10 years.  I took a brief break to raise my 2 girls.  During a search for my older daughter's preschool, I decided to enroll her at Little Scholars Preschool. I fell in love with the school's philosophy and beautiful classroom space.  I have worked here since the fall of 2015 as an assistant teacher. I completed my Head Teacher certificate in 2019.

 

As a certified Children’s Yoga instructor, I provide the children with an age appropriate yoga class each week.  I have been working towards my “Cosmic Yoga” certification all summer and am excited to bring more knowledge about the latest children yoga practices and story telling to life. This certification keeps me up to date on the social emotional development in young children and to act out things that are relatable to their social emotional growth as well as physical fitness and coordination. I enjoy working together to create new ideas and managing our classroom agriculture program.

 

I am certified in CPR, First Aid, AED, and Medication Authorization. I reside in Rocky Hill with my husband and two daughters. My hobbies include my own yoga practice, and maintaining children’s yoga curriculum. I love the beach, dogs, cooking, watching my own children play sports and spending time with my family and my own dog, Gingy.

Jennifer Mahard

Assistant Teacher

 

 

I graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2007 with a degree in Accounting. I worked for several years as a CPA at a major accounting firm until my husband and I welcomed our first child. I have spent the last eleven years raising our three children and supporting my husband's active-duty military career. 

I am so excited to be joining the Little Scholars Preschool team! All three of our children attended the preschool and I know from their experiences what a wonderful and enriching environment it offers. I look forward to contributing to the program with creative energy and enthusiasm. I am certified in CPR, First Aid, AED, and Medication Authorization.

My husband, Sean, and I live in our hometown of Rocky Hill with our three children, Jonathan (10), Maeva (7), and Mac (5). I spend most of my time these days on the sidelines cheering for my children and their various sports teams.
