Kirsten Mariotti

​Executive Administrator of Small Wonders & Greenford Administrator

I’ve been with Small Wonders since August of 2011, not long after Leslie opened the first location. I graduated from YSU with a PreKindergarten degree, and have also furthered my education by taking online classes through the University of Cincinnati. I love seeing the children grow and change through their years with us, especially the ones that start as a baby and leave for kindergarten. I also love to see when them years later after they have grown up, to see the great people they have become. Outside of work, my family and I like to spend time boating and four-wheeling. I also coach elementary school cheerleading.

I started at Small Wonders September 2017. It has been a wonderful experience getting to know everyone and creating a bond with the children. I plan to pursue my degree towards being a teacher or administrator. Outside of work and in my free time I love to swim, fish and have bonfires. Thank you all for allowing me to be apart of your children's lives. I hope to see more of you enroll at Small Wonders.

I have been a part of childcare and preschool for 15 years. I love working with toddlers and am looking forward to starting a new routine full of learning and fun. I have spent a few years working on Early Childhood Education at the University of Cincinnati and I am currently enrolled at Southern New Hampshire University. In the Fall of 2019, I will graduate with a bachelor's degree in Human Services. I look forward to learning from Kirsten and becoming your new administrator!

My name is Regina! I was raised in a minister’s home and we were all homeschooled. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Church and Family Ministries from God’s Bible School and College, Cincinnati, Ohio. I enjoy children and have interacted with them in different settings throughout my life—babysitting, Children’s Church and Preschool aide and teacher. I love animals. I own a purebred lab and an ornery kitten. My dog is a certified Search and Rescue dog and we are on an Ohio search and rescue team together. Some other things I like to do are bake goodies, painting, read a good book, any type of craft project, and working outside in the garden or flower beds.

Preschool Teacher

Hello, my name is Ms. Cassie.  I started working at our Greenford location in 2012.  I have had the chance to work all over at every location and love what I do.  I was able to get to know all students and parents and enjoy my time in each location.  I love working with children on art projects and enjoy working with the babies and school age.  My hobbies are bowling, hanging with my boyfriend, and the Cleveland Indians.  

I started working at Small Wonders in October 2016. I am a mother of two with experience working in Head Start and the MRDD. I am currently seeking my CDA to further my education in infant childcare. I love my job, the best part for me is watching the children reach their milestones, such a joy. When I am not at work I enjoy my family time whether it be with our horses or camping.

I am a Junior at Youngstown State University pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Intervention Specialist.  I have a lot of experience in this field and have had a lot of training.  I love working with kids and have done so for many years.  I started as a babysitter, nanny and then worked at an Elementary School for 2 years.  My passions include camping and being outside.  I am so excited to become part of the staff here and get to know you and your children.
