Meet the Staff

Maureen Maillard   

Maureen Maillard, Executive Director

I grew up in Stamford, NY.  I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Green Mountain College and was a pre-school teacher for thirteen years. I have been in the Early Childhood field for over twenty years. I started as the Executive Director of The Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center in January 2010. I am currently raising two boys of my own that are five and nine years old. Prior to working at the CCCCC, I worked at child care centers in Rutland, Vermont for IBM in Beaverton Oregon and a program in Boston. I am very proud of the program at the Center and welcome anyone to come and have a tour!   

 

 

Beth Denver

Beth Dever, Administrative Manager

I received my Associates in Business Administration in 1978 from Hudson Valley Community College. Prior to my employment at Cobleskill Campus child Care Center I was Fiscal Officer at Equinox in Albany. I started at the Center in 1990 as a part time bookkeeper. As the Center grew and expanded I took on more roles until in 2005 I was promoted to Administrative Manager. In addition to my financial responsibilities I take care of enrollment, human resources implementation, scheduling and assist our Director in overseeing compliance with OCFS regulations. This is a wonderful environment to work in…none of my previous employers included daily hugs as a benefit.

I have lived in Schoharie County since 1984 with my husband Don. We have three adult children. I enjoy working with the best child care providers in the world!

 

 

Sabrina McLasky

Sabrina McLasky, Office Assistant

I am currently working in the office here at the Campus Child Care Center and helping out in classrooms when needed. I have worked here for a little over two years and I have loved every second of it. I have lived in this area my whole life, and enjoy the sense of community here at the center. I am still in the process of furthering my education with whatever avenue that may be.  I am also a certified Recovery Coach and work with SCCASA. I feel truly lucky and blessed to be able to work with all of the wonderful women here at our child care center. I find there is no greater reward then to be able to at any moment of the day walk out of the office and into a classroom full of laughter from children and remember what life is really all about. 

 

 


Infants

 

Julia Teller

Julia Teller

I am a Head Teacher in the Infant Room here at Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center. I live in Palatine Bridge, New York with my husband, and have been married for two years. I am originally from Holland, Michigan where I grew up. I moved to New York about four years ago due to my husband’s work.

Working with young children has always been a dream of mine since I was a little girl and I have had the opportunity to grow and learn through working in a few different childcare centers and also by attending many early childhood trainings.  I have been working with children since I was 14 years old, my mother runs a childcare out of her home and that is where I learned my love of nurturing and caring for young children, and knew that I wanted to continue my education in Early Childhood.  I am a transfer student from Muskegon Community College where I began my Associates Degree in Early Childhood. I then moved to New York and transferred to SUNY Cobleskill to finish my Associates Degree. Once I have completed my Associates Degree I plan to continue on in order to obtain my Bachelor’s Degree, with a major in Early Childhood. I also have training in Baby Massage, Baby Signs, Shaken Baby Syndrome, SIDS, CPR and First Aid, Magda Gerber, Reggio and many other areas of Early Childhood.
