My name is Allison Vicciardo and I have been the Infant Teacher at TLE since we opened in 2013! I have the unique opportunity and privilege to watch 'my babies' grow up all the way to kindergarten graduation. I love being able to walk into every room in the building, get lots of hugs, and see how much they have learned. I have my Bachelor's degree from the University of Delaware and I am currently working on my Master's degree in education. I am also an avid traveler and have lived in various countries like Spain, Brazil, and Chile. When I am not being the 'baby-whisperer,' I enjoy hiking, reading, Zumba, and all things Disney!

My first "job" was as the neighborhood babysitter. I have always enjoyed being around children and watching them learn and grow. I attended Holy Family College/University both for undergraduate and graduate school. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I have worked as a Personal Care Aide, Therapeutic Support Staff, Intern Teacher and Elementary School Teacher.

Some of my favorites: Spending time with friends and family, going to the movies, reading (since I was an itty bitty), bowling, Chinese Food, soft pretzels, Dolphins, traveling, going to concerts, KitKats and of course coming to work to see all my little sweethearts.
