Stephanie Curran- Infant Room 1 Teacher

Hello, I’m Stephanie C. and I am one of the teachers in Room 1.  I grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida and currently live in Anderson.  I live with my husband Dave and our three children, Jordan, Emily, and Michael, and our cat Mittens.  I have two Child Associate’s Degrees (one in Preschool and Child Development and the other in Infant Curriculum, Development and Care).

In my free time I enjoy running, Zumba, shopping and being in the sunshine.  My favorite thing to do in the world is walking the beach and collecting seashells.  I chose to work with children because ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to be a teacher, so I decided to follow my dream.

I find inspiration everyday through working with the babies in the nursery and knowing that I am part of their first school experience.  I feel that it is a gift to me to help them explore the world around them.  I enjoy working at All About Kids because the staff is terrific to work with.  The name of the school says it all I think!  My hours are 6:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. if you need anything please let me know!
