Hello, my name is Nicole.  I graduated from Crestview High School and CCCTC.  My previous childcare experience was working at Heartland Christian Preschool for 5 years as a teachers aide.  I also was an office manager for my family's business for 13 years.  I have been married for 22 years and have 2 daughters ages 19 & 16.  In my spare time I love baking and spending time with my family.  I really look forward to getting to know all the kids and parents at Small Wonders.  

I started working at Small Wonders June 2018. I love children and being able to work with them and to see them grow. I am currently working on getting my CDA to further my education in infants and toddlers. The trainings I have as of right now are CPR, First Aid, Child Abuse, Communicable Disease, and ServeSafe. In my free time I like to ride horses, hanging out with my friends, and sleeping. Looking forward to getting to know your child and you!

I have my degree in Early Childhood Education and have been teaching since 2011. I have worked for Small Wonders since 2016, which has allowed me to work everyday with the best students and their families.

My name is Lisa Pulcini. I am so excited to begin working at Small Wonders Discovery and Learning Centers. I am married and live in Leetonia with my husband and our daughter. For the past twelve years, I have been a stay-at-home mom. Spending quality time with my family is very important to me. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, bicycling and long walks. I look forward to helping your children play, learn and grow in a fun, yet educational environment.

I am currently enrolled at YSU for Early Childhood Education and will be graduating in May 2020. I have always loved working with children and gained experience through summer camps and sports camps. Almost all of my free time is spent with my son. Some of our favorite things to do are read and play outside!

I am currently going to school at Kent State for Early Childhood Education.  I really enjoy working with babies and singing to them.  I am looking forward to meeting all of the children and families I will be working with at Small Wonders!

I have my degree in Early Childhood Education and I'm currently working towards my special education degree! I've worked in childcare since 2013, and I've been with Small Wonders since 2017. I just adore teaching and spending time with my students and working with their families!

 I am currently attending MCCTC for Early Childhood Education and will be graduating in May 2019. I will graduate with my Infant/Toddler CDA this Summer. I enjoy babysitting, being outside to go for walks, and I like to shop! I am looking forward to learning all of the new families and children that come to the Canfield location.   

Hi, I'm Marizol and I'm proud to be your Canfield administrator!

Although I started with Small Wonders in 2017, I've worked in childcare since 1998. I've studied Early Childhood Education course work, taken over 200 hours in Child Development, Health, Safety and Environment classes and trainings, and I've had over 4 years of management and administration experience. I earned my Associates degree in Applied Science of Multimedia and bring all of my love and experience to Small Wonders! 


At home, I have 2 boys and a girl who keep me busy. I love the joy of watching your children learn and grow with the staff and me!
