Silvana Vollero, Director


After college, I began my career as a toddler teacher.  I then decided to pursue a career in Administration.  I have a MS Degree in Administration of Early Childhood Settings from Wheelock College in Boston.  I have the Child Development Program Director Permit from the State of CA, the highest level of certification available in Early Childhood Education.  I have successfully achieved National Accreditation through the NAEYC with two preschools.


I have been a preschool director for over 30 years at several non-profit preschools, including church preschools and the Gluck Child Care Center for Scripps employees.  I was first introduced to the Reggio Emilia Approach in graduate school. I find its image of the young child as competent and capable in line with my personal beliefs.  A confident child with an eagerness and enthusiasm for learning is my goal for every child entrusted to my care.


I have been married many years to my college sweetheart Bob, a neuroscientist.  We have two wonderful sons, Christian and Daniel.  My parents immigrated from Italy and instilled in me a strong sense of family and the importance of education.


My hobbies include reading, exploring National Parks with my family, seashell collecting, and scrapbooking.
