Meet the Director
Little Professors Preschool is headed by Mrs. Amber Dunlavey, a graduate of Little Professors Preschool herself, who was born and raised, right here in Amenia!
With a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Childhood Education, Birth–6th grade and a Master's degree in Literacy with an Emphasis in Elementary Education, Mrs. Dunlavey is heavily rooted in education. Prior to taking on the role of Director at Little Professors, Mrs. Dunlavey worked as a teacher and mentor at The Institute for Collegiate and Career Studies. She is also a certified life coach.
“As the Director of Little Professor's, I hope to instill a joy of learning into my students. I want to set a positive tone for the rest of their educational career. That was done for me, which is how I developed a passion for education and children. I want all of the children who attend Little Professors to leave with a smile on their face, and love in their heart. I designed the P.L.A.I.℠ curriculum to teach and implement 21st century educational tools, reinforcing social behaviors such as communication, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration. This philosophy fosters a lifelong love of learning and creates meaningful connections at an early age. We are excited to bring such a creative and progressive program to the Lower Hudson Valley."
