SW Rochester (St. John’s)

Our SW Rochester center is located on the St. John’s nursing home campus. Child care and elder care are brought together each week so classrooms get to experience intergenerational programming with residents of the nursing home.

Located next to The Highland Botanical Park, children have the opportunity of exploring nature at it’s best. The Lamberton Conservatory is within easy walking distance of our center- a perk we often take advantage of.

A Word From Our Director:

I have always had a passion for working with children and inspiring them to grow. I earned my undergraduate degree in childhood education along with a certification in Special Education. Since then I have gained over 25 years of experience in early childhood education including roles as Coordinating Director and Executive Director.  Additionally, I owned and operated my own licensed group home. 

I believe that every child is capable of learning given the right environment and support. Not only do I take joy in watching children reach new milestones and goals, but I also enjoy the partnerships that I make with the families in our care. I view myself as an extension of you and will work with you to help advocate for your children so that together we can guide and raise happy healthy children. Generations prides itself in offering high quality child care and I am honored to be part of that process.
