All About Our Education Director

Sheila Zielinski

 I have obtained a Master’s degree in Art Education, an Associate’s degree in Performing Arts and Bachelor’s in Art History with a minor in Education. I have received certifications in both Childhood and Art Education and have taught Early Childhood Education for over nine years. I also have had the greatest experience being the head Director for two other Preschools where I oversaw Universal Preschool and the infant/toddlers. Between my time in teaching preschool and Directing schools I had the opportunity to teach art to grades k-12. Through my huge passion for Education and the Arts, I utilize all that I have learned through my schooling as well as all of my past experiences and implement them into my teachings in my classroom and my school.    

My Philosophy


My goal is to teach students that everyone can achieve anything as long as they put their mind and hearts into all their work. I want each student to understand that obstacles encountered are pathways of learning which help them to realize their own vision. My job is to push students to never give up on themselves. There will be both positive and negative reactions to their work in school and this may cause fear or lack of confidence in their artwork/school work. I want my students to know that their work does matter and each one of them is equally important to this world. I believe that art is something special and personal, it conveys who you are. I believe that my job is to find each special quality in my students and my staff and teach them how to understand their uniqueness. I want them to accept themselves as an individual and be proud of who they are.

Our Programs

Infants | 6 weeks to 12 months

A typical day for infants in our classroom includes time for play, story time, meals, sleep, tummy time as well as individual and group activities in the morning and afternoon. The day is full of quality interaction with teachers as your child develops social skills and learns to enjoy and trust their surroundings. Throughout the day we check to ensure diapers are changed as needed. 

Toddlers | 13 to 36 months

Your toddler is making great developmental strides, from first steps to potty training — and we’re here to help! We respond to your toddler’s growing energy and curiosity with fun learning activities and creative playtime while introducing structure, consistency, and an established routine.

Early Preschool | 2 to 3 years

 Anyone who has a 2- or 3-year-old at home knows they are a bundle of energy and curiosity; always looking for something new to discover. Learn how we support your child’s important transition from toddler-hood to preschooler in this program.  

Preschool | 3 to 4 years

The foundation for learning success is built is these early years, so our program is focused on providing your child with a solid grounding in the skills needed for kindergarten, including critical thinking, problem solving, socialization, relationship building, language and movement.  

Before / After School | 5 to 6 years

 Our program provides a supervised, organized and fun environment with homework support for your child after the school day ends. We also offer full-day options during school breaks, teacher workdays, most holidays and summer!
