A Word From Our Director:
My history with Generations goes back to 2005 when I decided to leave my teaching career and become the site director at our Fairport location. I spent several years there until I had my own son. I always wanted to be at home with my children while they were young, so Generations graciously allowed me to go part time. In doing so, I was able to travel to all of our locations and got I to know many wonderful families and staff members. Now I am a mother of two amazing children whom have taught me a lot over the last 7 years. I recently decided, with my youngest child getting ready for Kindergarten, that I am ready to work full time again. In doing so, I have made my work home at our St. John’s location. It is always exciting getting know everyone and becoming a part of this family as well.

A Word From Our Classroom Coordinator:
I have been working for Generations since the Summer of 1996 just after Graduation from High School. I was not sure what I wanted to be “when I grew up” and I was looking for something to do for the summer. Well, I have been there ever since and could not imagine being anywhere else. I fell in love with how every day is different and how the children look forward to seeing the staff. Their love is unconditional and how can you not love that?
I live not even a mile away from our St. John’s location and I have the pleasure of seeing the children I work with while taking my dogs for a walk or going by the local playground. I was also a very fortunate parent to be able to have had my own (now 17 year old) son attend Generations from the ages of 6 weeks until he was 12. Additionally, I am very close to my Grandparents and so I believe the Intergenerational programming that Generations offers is a wonderful and unique opportunity for both the children and grandparents alike. I am so proud to be part of this amazing team.
