Hi! I am Christina. I began my experience at Woodland Playhouse during the 2014-15 school year when my oldest child, Isabelle, attended. I fell in love with the school, the atmosphere and the teachers and decided to enroll my son, Leonardo, as soon as he was old enough. When Grace approached me in 2016 about partnering, I was thrilled. I hold a BA in Childhood Education (B-6) with a concentration in English, and a MA in Childhood Education with a concentration in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). I have spent years running a small, family owned business before creating Woodland Playhouse, LLC with Grace - an expansion of the original Woodland Playhouse. Upon Grace's leaving Woodland Playhouse in 2019, I took over the LLC on my own. As lead teacher and owner, I've worked hard to hold fast to the heart and spirit of the original Woodland Playhouse that I fell in love with as a parent. I love combining my natural entrepreneurial spirit and my love for children and teaching in a developmentally appropriate, experiential way -- playing, reading and exploring!
