My name is Tiffany and I am the Toddler 1 lead teacher here at Home Away from Home! I also am second in charge and take care of the day to day tasks when the director isn't here! I was born and raised in Bufffalo NY. I came to Rochester for college at Roberts Wesleyan and stayed in the area after I received my Bachelors degree in social work in Spring 2020! I have 7 years experience in the child care field for all age groups (infant to age 5) and it has been an amazing experience to watch kids grow up from an infant to a big 4 or 5 year old prepping for kindergarten! My favorite thing about woring in this field is watching your little ones grow and develop new skills! I also LOVE to tell you stories about your little ones day at pick up, whether it was a milestone or just something silly they did or said that day, I love to share those moments with parents to give them a smile or a laugh. In my free time I enjoy doing photography at parks with friends, going to see the newest marvel movie, or relaxing at home watching TV.

Hello my name is Mackenzie Clancy, soon to be Pelusio. I grew up in Rochester with my family. I am the Toddler 1 teacher. I went to SUNY Brockport for early childhood education and psychology but when Covid started I realized online school was not for me. I have about six to seven years of childcare experience between my major, my family, and teaching swim lessons to kids of all ages. I have two cats at home with my Fiancé, Robert. The thing I love most about working with children is their positive outlook on life and hearing how they see the world. The work I am doing here at Home Away From Home Childcare Center with the Toddler 1s is exactly what I want to be doing for the rest of my life, I am always happy and excited to talk to parents about their little ones days anytime.
