Jaime Maddelena

Preschool Director

Guiding young children through hands-on learning experiences based on the natural world is Jaime's passion. She is a lover of nature and a mother of two wonderful children.

Jaime started her journey towards working with children by attending Montclair State University to receive her BA in Family and Child Studies.  From there, she continued her journey by starting in a small, non-profit, child care program where she went from being a teacher's assistant to director in just 2 years. Then, Jaime's journey took her to a non-profit agency where her job as a Quality Improvement Specialist directed her on a different path. This path led her to work with child care programs on improving their quality by working in the classrooms with teachers, developing improvements plans and providing trainings.  It is there that she received extensive training in curriculum, health and safety practices, quality assessments and infant mental health.

Through those experiences,  she has developed a strong sense of understanding about the needs of children. She believes children are at their best when they are given a happy, loving and healthy place to learn and grow.

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.” Rachel Carson

Judi Pack, M. Ed.

Preschool Specialist

Voyagers' is fortunate to have Judi Pack on board as an early childhood specialist aiding in the design of our preschool programs and environment.

In her work as an independent consultant, Judi encourages early childhood professionals to listen carefully to children in order to build on their ideas and interests and, most importantly, to focus on the joy of being together, discovering and learning.
