Gabriella Leonetti, Director (Cheshire)

Gabriella has been in the childcare field for more than 15 years. She has held every possible position in this field, from assistant teacher to management. She joined Educational Playcare at the Farmington location in 2011 as a two-year-old teacher. She went on to become a preschool teacher and then a Toddler Lead Teacher. She is now the Director of our center in Berlin and she is loving every minute of it!

Gabriella has her associate degree in Early Childhood Education, her bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Preschool and Infant/Toddler Development, and is a certified Director.

When asked why she chose to work in the early childhood field, Gabriella answered, “Being the middle child in my family, I grew up taking care of my younger sister and being the peacemaker between both sisters. I knew I wanted to be a teacher ever since I started playing “school” with my toys! Growing up as a bi-lingual child had its challenges and it was my teachers that helped me through my schooling as I was growing up. Nothing is better than watching a child that is struggling toward a goal, finally achieve it. Watching children grow as they move through the programs in our center is absolutely amazing! I wouldn’t want to be working anywhere else!”

Gabriella and her husband live in Southington with their children, Isabella and Louis, and two dogs Wrangler and Stella. She loves spending time outside with her family and friends and running obstacle races!
