Part of our commitment to providing quality care and education means that we have certified, experienced teachers in every room of our center, working closely with a talented, dedicated leadership team accountable to the families we serve. The average tenure of our staff is 7 years On The Green!
JoAnn Quattro, Executive Director
JoAnn Quattro has been a part of the Children on the Green family since she brought her baby daughter to the infant room in 1996. Impressed by the caring and knowledgeable staff (including founding director Rochelle Kelman and a young part-time assistant named Andrew Cattano), she joined the Board of Trustees two years later and served three terms as president. Over the next twenty years, JoAnn worked in the early childhood education field as a child care director, a consultant and a funder, most significantly with United Way of Northern New Jersey, where she engaged in advocacy and community outreach in Morris, western Essex and Somerset counties. She is thrilled and grateful to return to Children on the Green to lead the center forward into a changing future.
