Meet Colleen

Hi! My name is Colleen Gallagher and I am a recent graduate from Curry College with a bachelors degree in Early Education and Care. My past work experience and educational experience has taught me the physical, emotional and intellectual growth of a child and what goes to into caring for all children with the upmost respect in a loving a nurturing environment. Some professional experiences I have had so far working with children are, student teaching, nannying for two years, being a preschool teachers assistant, a camp counselor and an after school program mentor. I currently reside in Madison, CT for the summer, as an assistant director of a summer camp, however, I will be moving back to the Boston area in August. I am an animal lover with a passion for the outdoors, so I love sports and any other activities that involve staying active! In college, I minored Read more in studio arts so I also enjoy spending free time working on new projects. Some things I like to do for fun with children of all ages is coming up with arts and crafts activities because of how great it is for their intellectual development all while being a fun way for children to express their imagination and creativity. A child’s safety is always my number one priority at all times, while also providing a caring, fun, and nurturing environment. If you have any other questions about my past experience working and caring for children, please feel free to reach out to me
