Nicole Elliott, Director
Nicole has been a part of KinderArt since 2015. Her involvement began when she enrolled her son in the infant
program and personally witnessed the impact it had on his growth and development.
Majoring in psychology with a concentration in education, Nicole received her Bachelor of Arts degree from
Assumption College. She has over 10 years of experience working with young children of various needs and developmental levels.
“I believe that as early childhood educators we are responsible for providing all young children with positive learning experiences.
We strive to make every learning opportunity a fun, playful, positive one for each and every child, thus helping the children grow
and gain important skills, all while falling in love with learning. Nothing brightens our day more than seeing the smile on each
and every child’s face that enters into our school.”
Nicole is the mother of two young children, Evan and Amalia, who both attend KinderArt.
Stephanie Grant, Education Coordinator
Stephanie came to KinderArt in 2008. She is Certified in Early Childhood Education and graduated from RIC with a double major in Elementary Education and Psychology. She has a passion for teaching preschool-aged children and has been a preschool teacher since 2001.
“I am committed to teaching because I like to watch children progress. I especially like that moment of discovery when a child learns to do something new, when a huge smile of accomplishment appears on a child’s face. In that instant, we know that their enthusiasm for learning will grow. At KinderArt, we continually foster a warm and welcoming zone of discovery for children. Every day at KinderArt is a new experience of learning through play.”
Stephanie is the mother of two children Kaitlyn and Ryan, who both have attended KinderArt.
