Hello! My name is Daria Ciaffone and I have been a part of the CWA team for three years. I began in September of 2013 as a lead infant teacher where I cared for 12 – 18 month old infants. As the children grew out of the infant stage and were ready for toddler hood, we transitioned together to the Toddler classroom where I was the lead teacher for them as well. When the summer approached I accepted the position as Summer Camp Director for the 2013 CWA summer camp program. Throughout the summer, I implemented an educational and fun program for five to twelve year old children. I chaperoned numerous field trips and incorporated critical thinking activities to follow our fun filled events as well. In December of 2014, I accepted the position as Director to implement my knowledge in the field of Early Childhood Education. I currently have my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education where I completed three 126 hour internships in an Early Childhood Center. To continue my education I transferred to Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY. As of January 31st, 2015 I completed the requirements for my Bachelor of Science Degree in Behavioral Studies. I am currently completing my Masters Degree in Early Childhood at Manhattanville. I absolutely love working here at Child’s World Academy and I am honored to have had the experience to work in a variety of classrooms. I look forward to learning more and working with all of the families and children.
