Nicole Orfino, Assistant Director (Trumbull)

Nicole joined Educational Playcare in 2017 and in that time she has held the roles of an Alternate Administrator, Head teacher, Curriculum Coordinator, and a Quack Pack teacher. Nicole has been in Early Education since 2008 and has worked extensively with children ranging in ages from 6 weeks to 12 years old. In that time, she has held various positions including infant room lead teacher, toddler lead teacher, program lead in the toddler department and preschool/pre-k lead teacher.

Nicole holds an associate’s degree in early childhood education from Naugatuck Valley Community College and is a state certified head teacher. Nicole has always had a passion for teaching. She believes in whole teaching concepts, as not every child learns the same way. Nicole also believes that a partnership with family and “learning through play” are key components to early childhood education and development.

Family time is important to Nicole and she enjoys spending time with her husband and 3 dogs, as well her extended family of nieces and nephews. In her spare time, she likes to be outdoors gardening or sitting down with a good book.
