Joanna Colon

Hi!  I'm Miss Joanna (Jo-ahn-a)!  I am the teacher in one of the PreK classrooms.  Along with having more than 15 years of experience I have a one year old daughter, Eliana.  I come from a local childcare center where I was a lead teacher with all ages.  In the off chance I have any free time I really enjoy taking my nieces shopping and spending time with my family!  I really love going to Longwood Gardens during every season, but my favorite season is Autumn.  I am so glad I could join the Arbor team and cannot wait to prep your children for Kindergarten!

Miss Morgan DeCaro

Hello!  My name is Morgan DeCaro and I am 27 years old.  I am the mother to Maya (6) and Karson (2).  I have lived in West Chester my entire life and am so excited to raise my kids in the same town!  In our free time you will find us spending quality time outside with our Rottweiler puppy: Harley.  I have previously worked in childcare for several years and then took a break to stay home with my son.  I am thrilled to be back and be a part of the Arbor team!

Miss Morgan Rose

Miss Morgan comes to us with an incredible amount of experience and is currently enrolled in her CDA program!  Miss Morgan's mother was heavily involved with Keystone Stars, Department of Human Services and even ran/owned quite a few centers.  Both she and Mom are invaluable when it comes to help with state regulations!

Miss Morgan is our co-lead teacher in our infant classroom.  She was previously a parent that brought her daughter on a daily basis and when asked if she wanted to work with us she never hesitated!  She jumped right into the infant room and started making it her own!  Don't forget to stop by in the tour to see the new colors!

Kalina Brown

Miss Kalina is our two year old teacher!  You will see Miss Kalina working side by side in our Fraser's Room with Miss Lexxi. They have a ton of fun activities planned for the year along with POTTY TRAINING!  Miss Kalina comes from a local nonprofit childcare center where she worked with infants-toddlers.  She also has a lot of nieces and nephews that she cares for in the evening and on weekends! She love kids !

Lexxi Ahlers

It was almost as if Lexxi fell into our laps at the right place and the right time!  She is a bright, energetic, and an incredibly outgoing person.  She loves to update all of the parents in her class with their daily lessons every afternoon at pick up time.  Her lesson plans are magical, thoughtful and imaginary.  Whenever our parents who have younger children in the school walk past by her room they ALWAYS compliment how much they cannot wait to be in the Fraser's classroom with Miss Lexxi and Miss Kalina.  There is not a day that goes by that she does not have a smile on her face, or she's singing or dancing with the kids.  In this age group she and Miss Kalina take time to write and implement lesson plans.  They are probably one of the best teams I have had in the school in a long time!

Aislinn Lilley

Miss Aislinn (Azlyn) is one of our volunteers and subs at Arbor.  She is also my daughter!  Miss Aislinn worked with us during the summer and will be on stand by in the afternoons or on her days off as she starts High School.  During the summer she worked in the one year old classroom writing lesson plans and coming up with awesome art projects!  Ais aspires to be a pediatrician when she grows up, but mom would rather have her follow in her footsteps taking over the Arbor business!
