Led by Elena and her assistant Joan, the children experience lots of fun and playtime. Modeled after a Montessori classroom, the day care space is highly organized and stocked with a selection of games, puzzles, toys, books, and sensory materials.
 
Elena and Joan take a seasonal approach to activities and ensure that all children have access to age-appropriate materials. The children can also participate in music, arts and crafts, and enjoy extended outdoor playtime.

Elena Cesario

Elena has been at OCMS for over 17 years. She’s certified in early childhood education and previously worked in Children’s House, which enriched her understanding and appreciation of Montessori. “It’s been so special to be a part of this community—and so much fun teaching lifelong lessons in artistic ways.”

Joan DaSilva

From babysitting at the age of 11 to running a day care out of her home, Joan has always loved being around children. “Coming to work everyday and seeing all the smiling faces of all the children is so very rewarding.”
