Our Loving Staff:
Home Away From Home Child Care Center wants to introduce you to all of their staff members. Below and on the following page the staff have wrote a little something about themselves to share with you and your children.
My name is Robin Fox and I am the lead Toddler 2 Teacher here at Home Away From Home Child Care Center. I have been working in childcare for 25 years. I love to teach the children sign language! I have two sons and two daughter in laws and 3 beautiful grand children. I look forward to getting to know you and your little ones grow and learn here at Home Away From Home.
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.
My name is Stephanie Jarvis and I am so excited to be apart of this team! I have been working with children for many years and I have a two and a half year old son named Greyson. I am looking forward to getting to know all of the staff, parents, and children here. I love watching as each child develops more, and am honored to be a part of it as their teacher. Each child goes at a different pace in their development and my goal is to make sure that we are teaching them things like shapes, numbers, colors, animals, doing crafts, sensory play, and so much more to help them develop their skills. I look forward to growing as a teacher. I am currently working towards my CDA and am the lead toddler teacher here at Home Away From Home!

Hello, My name is Rajtempie and I am one of the preschool teachers at Home Away From Home. I was born and raised in Rochester NY, where I also earned a B.S. in Business Management from Rochester Institute of Technology. At the age of 15 I volunteered at a summer camp which is where my love of working with children began. Since then I have gained tons of experience working in various youth centered programs around the city of Rochester and in the early childhood education field. I highly value the play based learning style and I LOVE creating messy sensory activities in the classroom. I look forward to creating art, mess, and memories with your children!
My name is Erin Kennedy. I am an assistant teacher/float here at the center. I have been working in daycare for nearly 8 years, though my experience in working with children goes back to my own childhood when my sister and I helped my mom in her in-home daycare. Since then, I have cared for children in a variety of settings from babysitting to volunteering in church programs to some college experience in early childhood education. There's few things that bring me more joy than watching a child, whether at the center or one of my sister's 3 children, learn and discover a new skill or interest. When not working, I enjoy spending time with family including my niece and nephews, watching old black and white movies and TV shows and being outdoors, weather permitting.
My name Nicole Spence I was born and raised in Rochester, NY. I am currently attending Genesee Community College majoring in nursing. I will be working as a floater getting to know all the children in all the different age levels. I am excited to get to know you and your children and watch them learn and grow!
