Our top priority is to ensure the lifelong love of learning for all our students while creating the leaders of tomorrow!

Ms. Cozine has been working with children for almost ten years now. From a young age, Ms. Cozine began working with preschool children and made the decision to pursue a career in childcare early on.
She has worked for different schools, childcare centers and the YMCA in both the NJ and the New England Areas and has run numerous after school and summer camp programs throughout the last few years.

She attended Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, NH and graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Child Development Psychology in the short time of 2 years. She then became a teacher’s assistant in a Montessori Classroom and fell in love with the Montessori Method. Within a year, she started the process to become a fully Certified Montessori Teacher and gained her certification through the North American Montessori Association. She has now been teaching Montessori for four years and loves every aspect of working with the children, especially when it comes to using the Montessori Method.

Ms. Cozine believes in creating strong bonds with children and trust. She wants all children to gain self-confidence and believe that they can do anything they set their minds to. She utilizes the Montessori Method to allow children to become independent and active learners, while having fun and learning through discovery. She loves singing and dancing and finds that adding aspects of music to the classroom makes learning fun and interactive. She aims to work to develop the whole child and help them grow to become confident leaders of the future.

Ms. Cozine received her master’s degree in education with a focus on curriculum and instruction.
